Question: MacBook Pro failing to fully boot


I have a 13" MacBook Pro (Mid 2012) that is failing to fully boot.

What happens once I press the power button:

  • Screen turns on, and the typical boot-up loading screen with the Apple logo appears
  • Once the loading progress bar reaches about halfway, the screen goes black
  • About 10 seconds later, the login screen appears
  • I click on my account, type my password, and press enter

Now this is when the funky stuff begins....

  • The computer does not transition from showing the password box to the loading bar
  • Sections of the screen are now gray & green and slightly jittery

After roughly 2 minutes of spazzing out with along with the odd colors showing up....

  • Screen goes black
  • Fan is still fanning
  • Repeated beeping noise

Annnddd thats when I hold the power button and come to you fellas for some help

I'm looking to diagnose the problem in order to hopefully fix it,

any help/recommendation/advice would be much appreciated.
