Dude, it's a Dell.

Is the OS CD scratched in any way?

Where is it freezing?
During txt mode setup or after the reboot during GUI mode?

What led up to you reinstalling? (Random crashes, freezing, just because..)?

I reformated because my program were constantly crashing and my files were getting corrupted.

The windows setup freezes in the gui at about 50% through the installing devices part.

EDIT: As far as I know the drive was formatted properly. I selected the ntfs format (not the quick one).

Well that tells me your computer is dying, could be the ram or hard drive with bad sectors.

I think it's time to use that good old DELL warranty.

We're all gonna say: dude, it's a dell!

But hey, this is what could be wrong. You told us all of your files were getting corrupted before and stuff. The hard drive might be bad! That would be the only thing I could see from the explanations you've given us. If files were getting corrupted and windows was crashing, a clean format won't help if the hard drive is dying.

Look in to a new hard drive, or grab an old working on, and see if that works.

You could always ZERO your hard drive, which will write ZEROS to everything, so if theirs anything causes it all traces will be gone, and the hard drive will be like brand new. That is unless the hard drive is broken. This takes overnight, but if this doesnt work then I would say your hard drive is broken. It would be on the western digital CD that came with the drive, or you can download the ISO from the western digital site and burn it onto a CD a boot from that CD.
