I can't use the PC unless in safe mode

Hi there.

From a couple of days ago, my PC is constantly failing to start and when it does it either crashes during the loading of personal settings or just after logon. It's only stable when in safe mode. I've tried everything I can think of and due to important data on my PC, clean installing windows is not an option. Before all this happened, I'd get a blank desktop screen when logging in and nothing apart from the odd keyboard shortcut would work.

Uninstall the video drivers, reboot and reinstall them from the
driver disk.

You could also try system restore.

By video drivers, do you mean "legacy video capture devices" or "display drivers"?
System restore doesn't work, Already tried it.
