BSOD while surfing internet. After that everything went to hell. Help!

Alright, so heres the story

Yesterday I was surfing the internet on my Dell XPS 15 (L50A2X Model, to be precise).|
When suddenly I got him by a random BSOD. Thinking nothing of it, i restarted my laptop and continued to use it. However, after 5-10 minutes of usage it BSOD's again. I re-tried this several times. Giving up, I launched windows in safe mode. With the small resolution and no networking, only basic drivers, etc. Since I could not do much in safe mode, I got my windows install CD and re-installed WHILE IN SAFE MODE. Once I launched my new windows, it looked all fine...except that the resolution was still super low (640 x 480) and that it was only running basic drivers. It was in safe mode, except it didnt say safe mode in the corners and I did not press F8 upon boot. So I restarted my PC and pressed F8, and chose Start Windows Normally. Still the same problem. Frustrated and unable to find a solution on my trusty google, I decide to wipe my hard drive by booting from the windows cd directly. Then I reinstalled windows 7 home premium 64bit. Still the same problem. Really pissed now, I went to bed. Is my computer screwed? Is this a common problem?

It looks like that you need your graphics card driver updating.

When re-installing the OS, you need to install all your hardware drivers. You can get those directly from Dell's website.

The drivers for your hardware also varies depending on the operating system. If you moved from a different OS, you'd need a new set of drivers for your computer's hardware intended for that particular OS.
