I found the answer on Google. Here is what I found!
Question: What does Safe Mode do, and how do I run it?

[COLOR=blue]Possible
Cause: Safe Mode loads the Windows operating systems with the minimum number of drivers needed to function, and it uses basic versions of the drivers it does load (standard VGA driver for video, for example.) Safe Mode does not load drivers for printer, CD-ROM drive, tape backup system, network, and sound card, and it does not load run= and load= lines from win.ini. Safe Mode limits the number of variables in running the computer system, and therefore provides a good environment for troubleshooting and tracking down hardware and software conflicts.

In XP SP1 and later, you can choose "safe mode with networking" which will allow you to get online in safe mode. Safe mode is just the bare essentials of Windows, and is used for diagnostics & troublehooting.
