Windows 10 desktop constantly refreshes after replacing to SSD

Hello, I have an older HP laptop G7-340us.  It originally came with Windows 7. The owner of the laptop upgraded to Windows 10.  I am replacing the hard drive with a Solid State.  Once I changed to the solid state the desktop constantly refreshes and I cannot get it to stop.

I was able to update the BIOS.  
Started up in Safe mode and it still refreshes in safe mode.

Any thoughts on how to fix this?
