I went to log on my MacBook and this is what I saw, does anybody know what's going on.

2016 MacBook Pro 13.3 inches, gpu is what I thought as well. Is it worth fixing?
Depends. Do you have a local tech shop (or Apple store) in your area that’s open and could take a look at it? I’d recommend stopping by and asking them just so you’re sure what the issue is. And then you can decide from there. First I would recommend restarting your MacBook if you haven’t done so yet. If that doesn’t work try resetting the SMC and NVRAM (links below). If none of this works I’d recommend heading over to a computer shop to get them to take a look at it.

First reset smc and pram like the post above

try to connect it to external monitor if you have, and see if it still the same blue and green

it could be your LCD at fault also.

The picture looks like a non-retina MacBook with a DVD drive.
Yes you are correct

Is the screen an original Apple unit? It looks like a non-retina and the words "MacBook Pro" are missing from the bottom of the LCD bezel.
Yes original Apple, non-retina and it is a MacBook Pro, the printing is there it was just not picked up by my iPhone.

Thanks a lot guys for your reply, I'll get the resetting done and get back with you.

Maybe this will help, I know it shows a 2012 model but I bought it in 2016 brand new.

If it can't be fixed or isn't worth fixing I just take a sledgehammer to it and trash it.

Out there...way out there
Confused. Post 11 shows a picture with the MacBook Pro emblem on the screen. Post 1 does not show that.

OP states they brought it New in 2016, yet all signs point to it being a 2012.

I decided to do a complete install, when I booted it up someone else's name popped up to login so I did the command R key and the video is looking normal now that it's reinstalling El Capitan. I'm wondering if this computer was hacked?
