I think this is where I should be posting this. I'm booting fine in safe mode, and it will be ok booting normal until I get to the desktop. Once I get there, I can see my desktop but it has lines across it and I'm not sure what's happening.

First guess is problem with GPU driver. Any recent changes or updates? What model computer do you have? Or if home build, what model GPU or motherboard.

 

Also, what do the lines look like? Vertical or horizontal? Blinking or constant? Black,white, colored?

Black with some white, horizontal. Constant. The GPU is AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series. I don't know what the motherboard is. It's home built, but I didn't do any updates. I was gaming and the screen went blue. I can boot it up normally, and it has the lines, but if I try to open chrome or anything it goes grey.

What Operating System are you using so I can list the driver specifically? Or try going here and use the Auto detect tool. Not sure if it will work in safe mode(with networking) though.

 

Good news is white lines isn't as bad as green and purple lines like this. That usually means hardware failure.

It doesn't work in safe mode, but I'm using Windows 7
They look like those but they're just black or white.

What doesn't work?

 

Are you saying that the problems disappear in safe mode...or that you cannot even boot into safe mode?

Download this installer onto a flash drive or some other external media and run it on the computer. It looks like you also tried re-seating the card. Have you checked for any settings in BIOS that apply to the PCI socket the GPU is in? Looking at the new pictures, I am thinking it could be the card dying. :(
