I am currently trying reinstall Windows, but it definitely looks like a graphics card issue. The Windows logo would flash in several places in the space of a few seconds and the flickering lines are persisting. The heatsink feels hot to the touch but the fan is blowing out cold air. Meanwhile, the table that it is sitting on is very hot. The only thing I remember doing before this happened is opening up the back cover to dust off the fans. I don't think I damaged anything hardware wise.

Ok, comletely reinstalling the OS solved that problem, although I have a feeling my GPU will fail one day.
