Re: my computer won't start up out of safe mode
This might be due to system registry, I'm not sure what operating system you are installed but below link might be useful for you to check the system registry and boot system failure... http://etech.maiila.com/?p=27 and http://etech.maiila.com/?p=24
If after doing above still doesn't work check your memory sticks.

Turn the computer off
Turn the computer on
Immediately hit F8 several times a second until a black and white menu appears, if you get the windows splash, you missed it. Start over
Select which way you want windows to start in safe mode
You will get a lot of white messages on a black screen
You will then get a message that says proceed to safe mode or do a system restore to recover
Proceed to safe mode.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs up as I do this for fun.
try to boot in safe mode.To do that. restart your computer continues press F8 key it will show the option select safe mode and you can work with that and change the reasoluition and restart the computer work with normal mode..
Try running in Safe mode. Start the computer and hit the F8 key many times till you get Windows Advanced Option menu - Choose safe mode with or with out networking.
Does your computer seem to be working now? (safe mode is a limited use mode) Chances are that your computer is infected and preventing normal use..
Restoring the computer would be the easiest way to fully clean out all infections and needed software corruptions. A full restore DELETES all DATA from the hard drive - Make sure you have all your data backed up. You can back up your DATA in side safe mode.
The information given relates to CORRUPTIBLE software like a virus.... Other issues may factor in to this but, not believed to be so.
Try to unplug the power cable then flip the laptop over on its closed lid and on the back should be an access to the battery. Remove the battery for about 2 minutes replace the battery and power cable. It should reboot to a black white screen giving 3 choices. You'll have about 35 seconds before the computer auto selects safe mode. Go ahead enter safe mode after it completely boots in safe mode shut down computer completely, wait 30 seconds and hopefully it will start up normally. If it doesn't you may have an issue with the operating system which unless your computer savvy and have all of the computers original cds you'll need to take it to a reputable computer repair shop
Ok try this, at boot up press F8, when the Menu comes up, choose Safe Mode, but this time instead of going to the desktop, choose System Restore, follow instructions, and when the Calender type window comes up, simply choose a time BEFORE, the time it went faulty. This should completely restore you to working again. As long as there are NO other problems.
starts up windows and shows safe-mode. That right there is your problem, windows defaults the monitor down to regular 640 mode. I will cut out the hdmi since that is not a monitor. Safe-mode is used to trouble shoot your computer and it loads just barely the drivers you need to see and work with the computer. You will have to get the computer to boot up normally then proceed from there, also you will have to set up your video card to output hdmi.
Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.
Try booting to "SAFE MODE" then see how much free space is left on the hard drive.
Also in safe mode, defragment the HDD if you have not do so in awhile.
You need a minimum of 15% free space for XP oe ME to run.
I found your other posts regarding this problem. I believe it may be that your monitor is failing. Do you have another monitor to try? Another clincher is to start the computer, do the login, and when the monitor goes dark, turn off it's power button, and turn it back on after waiting for 30 seconds or so. If the monitor lights and looks normal then goes back off, it's the monitor at fault.
do you have an aftermarket video card. In the bios you have to tell the computer if it is looking for a agp/onboard or PCI video card. Either that or the video driver or settings are wrong Try safe mode to check
