Hi guys,

I have Pentium 4 (Intel-845GL Chipset), 2 GHz, 2GB Ram, Intel Onboard Video 64MB. Whnever I boot into safe mode, the display resolution is Lowest (4 bit). The display drivers are not taken when in safe mode nor in any of Live CD's.
What do i do?

When you boot into safe mode, only essential drivers are loaded and essential windows components. Why do you need higher resolution in Safe Mode?

Generic drivers
Safe mode is a diagnostic mode so no need for the higher end drivers
Normal mode is where you need the higher end drivers with the resolutions.

There is no reason to be in safe mode?
Why would you run your system in safe mode for everyday operation?
This is used by technicians to diagnose problems and not for normal use?

The problem persists when I run Live CD's as well....
If any one can provide a solution then fine and good....

Otherwise I am not here to answer why I want to go to Safe Mode, rshaffer61...
Administrator may close this topic if not finding it feasible....

I dont think their is a way to display a higher res in safemode, your only suppose to be working in safe mode for specific reasons.
Are you 100% sure that your office machine is in safe mode? Thats bizarre.
Sorry, I cant help you

Yes I am very well accustomed with Safe Mode's and I troubleshoot all the office pc's. So I am sure that my office PC, when I boot it into Safe Mode, gets the higher resolution....

Newayz thanks to all...

Hi,

The only way I know of is to do the following

Right click on empty blank space on Desktop, then select Properties

click on Advanced, go to Adapter tab, then click on List All Mode. Select a mode with a screen resolution you want , and click on OK. Windows will apply the new resolution size and prompt you to accept the changes.

i think it's rather ludicrous to come here asking for information when you're unwilling to give back any....how in the world do you expect to get accurate help without giving accurate information
