✔ Best Answer
This looks like the graphics card is malfunctioning, as you cannot boot into safe mode and the visual distortions are taking place while displaying a basic loading screen.

The best course of action is to make sure that the graphics card is well ventilated, and does not have lots of dust buildup, as overheating can cause graphics cards to display some weird stuff.
