Windows 7: BSOD on every PC restart and artifacts

BSOD on every PC restart and artifacts

I have BSOD problem.
Last thing I was doing on my PC before I could "start Windows normally" was playing a game. I notice some artifacts started to appear and after that I got a BSOD. Once that occurred I just can't start my Windows normally anymore. It only works in safe mode. Shutting it down, cleaning just doesn't help. I always get the BSOD when I want to start it normally.
I notice that my motherboard loading screen also has artifacts.
