Question Nvidia drivers causing flickering and black screen when booting to Windows 10

Suddenly 2 days ago I boot up my PC like I normally do and I get this weird glitchy screen. This is the video of the boot up: LINK.

So I booted into safe mode, disabled the driver and then I got into normal mode. I tried updating the driver to the latest, but at some point it restarted the PC and went into the weird glitchy screen again. I tried also just waiting for about 15 mins of the screen flickering and this caused my Windows to just show a blue screen error when I booted up. Restore point didn't help, auto repair didn't, Windows support told me to do a clean install of Windows 10.

Anyway I'm not sure what should I do. Like how do I check if my GPU is working properly and it's just the driver software problems or something else. Oh the GPU is a msi GTX 970.

I'm gonna try booting to Ubuntu to see if everything works fine there. Otherwise gonna bring it in to some repair shop and see what they say.
