Running 10.10.5. Computer turns on, starts the loading process, but gets stuck about a third of the way up. It can use recovery mode, but not safe mode. I've tried repairing the disk and its permissions. File Vault isn't on, so I can't turn off drive encryption. I've tried disabling the wireless through terminal and restarting, which doesn't make it work either.

At this point I'm just hoping for a solution that doesn't require reformatting.

MacBook Pro 13" Mid-2012:
CPU - Intel i7-3520M @ 2.9GHz
RAM - 8GB DDR3 @ 1600MHz
Graphics - Intel HD 4000
Storage - 128GB SSD

Another thing I feel I should mention: when the loading bar gets stuck, the mouse appears and if I press buttons I get the false input noise. This makes it seem to me like it's completed loading but it just won't show the desktop.

I decided to just make a disk image on an external drive so I wouldn't lost my stuff, then format the drive and reinstall OSX. I updated my recovery partition to 10.10.3 a couple months ago so I wasn't too far behind.

Random BSOD and auto shutdown/ restart
I notice the BSOD trend to happen frequently when I have video/ flash running. I'm suspecting it to be a video/graphic card problem? Please help me to identify the problem. Thanks!
