Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop
You probably mean "Safe Mode" -- it is a restricted-functionality version of Windows, designed to be used when trouble-shooting because Windows will not start normally.
Press the SPACE bar, or click on the 'OK'.
But, the big question is why is Windows starting in "Safe Mode"?
Just shutdown, and restart, and see if it will restart in "Normal" mode.

1.) If when hitting the power button, ABSOLUTELY nothing happens, no fans come on, nothing- You need a new power supply most likely. I see this all the time in my shop. Here's the bad news- Dell likes to use their own special power supplies, so a normal one may not even fit in the case. If that is the case, then I'm sorry to say Dell likes to charge over $100 easily for a new one.
2.) Fans come on, lights come on, but no screen. This can mean any number of things. Bad VGA cable (or DVI), bad RAM, bad mobo, even a bad PCI card. time to start troubleshooting. Change what parts you can, remove any PCI cards that are not needed, remove one RAM card then the other, etc....

If your computer is indeed running, simply unplug your monitor from the wall, and then plug it back in. This will bring your monitor out of power save mode instantly.
