You will know as "Safe Mode" will be visible in the 4 corners of the screen. If not, then you are booted and some settings have gone to default perhaps. What makes you think you are still in safe mode?

So what makes you think you are still in safe mode? If it is the background or screen size, go into to start, control panel, display properties and check them there.

Julie Julie Julie...Welcome to G2G!

Sounds like you may have lost some video drivers or, at very least, your settings have been changed to the very basic settings that Windows uses when it encounters a problem.

Let's try this...Right click on your desktop and choose Properties. Click on the Settings tab. In the "Screen Resolution" box, see if you can move the slider to a resolution higher than it is at present...preferably to 1028 X 768 pixels. In the box to the right of that one (Color Quality), open the drop down menu and see if you have any better qualities listed such as "32 bit". If you can, choose the 32 Bit settings and click "Apply" (You may get a prompt asking if you want to apply the changes without restarting your computer...choose yes, and Don't panic if the screen flashes). If the settings do, in fact, change...click "Yes" in the dialog box and then click "OK" in the Settings dialog box.

If you can't change the settings with this method, post back and we will look for some hardware issues.
