Hi Guys
First time posting here. I have a MacBook Pro 2011, I have setup windows in it.

The graphics started playing and when I originally took to Apple, they said I have missed the dead line by few days, so they can't physically help me.

After many years untouched, I want to use it again and was hoping I can get some ideas/suggestions to fix it.

The mac automatically starts in the windows and I can login, but the screen as you can see in this photo looks shocking.

If i restart and press option, I get the option to start up using windows, Mac or recovery, I choose Mac HD to see if the screen is also bad in Mac, but the apple logo I can see has small lines across it.

Its takes forever for Mac to load (not sure if this is normal? Some times never loads) and the screen is much better than windows, but still some some lines

Can't i just put a new hard drive and run it as windows only? No Mac settings or recovery?

Thank you all in advance.
