    I'm probably not the right person to comment on this issue, but from the screenshots, it looks to me like the screen is not blurry, but rather that there's trash on the screen. Which, in my experience, has happened when something has been overwriting video memory with other data. And, therefore, leads me to ask: in what manner have you modified the memory sharing limits for the HD4000 GPU? And have you tried running without the modification?

    My guess would be that OS X (or some other running app) is getting confused about the region of memory being used by the GPU...

    Thanks for your comment, I'm thinking of reinstallation.

    When I got into recovery mode, it displayed like this.

    Yeah, that definitely looks like graphics memory is being written to or read from in the wrong order, with the bottom half of that window being split into regions like that. I would definitely try to undo the GPU modification. (Just starting recovery mode wouldn't be enough to do that...)

    Thanks a lot! Yes I undo the GPU modification, but the boot screen "broken" all the time.
