When I boot the computer it boots normally and goes to the login window. I login and the desktop shows up then after 3 seconds or so the screen just turns into all diagonal white/black lines flickers and i cant see or do anything. I can boot into safe mode fine and everything seems to work. Any idea whats causing this? Seems like something that is starting up after login that is causing it, not hardware. Thanks for any help!

Edit: In safe mode the processor/graphics card both seem to be recognized fine in the device manager. Under system devices there is something called Plug and Play BIOS extension that has the little yellow exclamation mark next to it. Could this have something to do with it? I don't want to disable it if I don't know what it is.

Looks like something got messed up with the graphics driver...should have guessed. Uninstalled and reinstalled and it works fine now. Feel free to delete this.
