My computer recently turned a year old, right at the birthday I started having issues. As soon as windows loaded tothe homescreen, the mouse would start glitching graphically, and then lines upon lines took over the screen. I got the blue screen. I uninstalled, cleaned registries, reinstalled, and still the same. Went through a ton of things I don't recall all of now, and in the process fried my hardddrive.
Fast forward, some thought it might be my harddrive already had an issue and that my graphic card simply would not do that. So I installed a new harddrive. It worked fine until it realized I had a graphic card and installed it automatically. I had been away from the computer and saw the notice.
Immediately all the old problems returned, and it makes my harddrive VERY loud, which it did to my old one too. I do not want to ruin my new graphics card. I basically need to know that my graphics card is utter crap, and then I will replace it. I've seen people come back from the blue screen though, and this time of year, I'd rather save the cash.
Right now I have it uninstalled, and my computer works fine, and is very quiet. Obviously I can't play games etc, just saying graphics wise, no issues.

Issue Details -
When windows loads to the homescreen, I can maybe open the start menu if I'm quick, then the mouse gets fuzzy, and lines begin to take over until the entire screen is warbled, the computer freezes, monitor turns black, and then the blue screen (pictured above) comes on, computer restarts with safe mode options.
