Login into safe mode.

You can use safe mode for a number of things...
Uninstalling programs that refuse to unistall in normal login;
Performing a system restore;
Scanning for dangerous viruses and Trojans;
and so many other things.
How ever, you can not install programs in safe mode because the installer is disabled.
In safe mod, you sound and graphics cards are also disabled, so you cant listen to anything or play video games.

To start your system in safe mode:
1. restart your system.
2. During system restart, press F8 before your Operating System (OS) is loaded, before the OS logo is displayed.
3. A list of options will be displayed, which include "Start Windows Normally","Safe Mode" among other options.
4. Select safe mod and press enter.
5. Give it a few seconds for safe mode to start, then log into your administrator account to start using safe mode.

The monitor screen goes dark, then comes back with everything enlarged and the colors wroong. Then, it goes dark again and comes back looking normal. What's wrong and what can I do? PLEASE HELP!! ...

could be with the monitor or video card/controller. first thing is to test another monitor if available and use a working video cable. if same thing happens, test if it is stable in safe mode. Restart the computer and press F8, then select Safe Mode. If display is stable in safe mode, it would be a video controller. Uninstall the existing driver, then download the latest one for your system through Dell support site.

My monitor is stuck on safe mode

It's possible that your computer is not booting to safe mode. Possibly the video settings are not set correctly or the driver is not properly installed in your computer. You can try to change the video settings of your computer by:

1. Click Start
2. Click Control Panel (Switch to "Classic view" if not in classic view)
3. Click on "Display"
4. Change the "Colors" to the highest
5. Drag the slider to the highest resolution

If you are not able to change the video settings, you can just update the video driver of your computer.

I need to reset the display settings but i cant see what they say

It's a simple fix. Reboot your computer and press the F8 key repeatedly until you come to a boot menu. Select Safe Mode. This will take you into Windows at a default of 640x480 resolution. Adjust the settings according to the monitor and lower them to what you had them before you did the changes.

Another method is when you are at the boot menu selection, you can select safe mode with command prompt.

Type c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe for windows xp to use the system restore and rollback windows to when it was working properly.

For windows vista type:

Monitor display is pinched at the corner

Check if the same thing happens under safe mode.

Safe Mode
Continue to press the F8 key when Windows starts to load
Or hold down the CTRL key
From the menu, select Safe Mode
Same thing? Then I have bad news for you. You need a new monitor. Best to verify for sure on another computer though.

Boot into Safe Mode and restore your display settings. Tap F8 during the boot process after the memory test until you get the boot menu, choose Safe Mode, wait for the system to boot, - it will look really strange - restore your display settings, reboot normally
