Hi Mad Stef, & welcome to Geeks2Go!
Your problem description does seem to be related to the graphics card or it's device driver.
When you say "My PC still detects my graphics card" do you mean it's actually listed by name in Device Manager, or are you just
going by the fact that Windows still comes up? (allbeit only in Safe Mode at present).
You see, it's possible your graphics-card device driver has become corrupted and needs re-installing. When that happens, Windows substitutes it's own low-resolution driver which causes Windows to look like Safe Mode when it isn't. Or it may indeed actually be running in Safe Mode as you say, in which case there would be a 'Safe Mode' message in all four corners of the screen. But whatever mode it's in, it's very likely you'll fix it by re-install ing the graphics driver.
If you don't have a CD with drivers on it for your PC, or if there isn't a folder named 'Drivers' on a second partion (D:) on your PC, you'' need to download the driver. Please download and run 'Belarc Advisor' and post the hardware system info to us so we can help you get the right driver.
