Getting Out of Safe Mode

In safe mode, you will see the words safe in all four corners of the screen. If this is the case, then shutdown and restart your computer.

If it still comes back up in safe mode after the reboot, then there is a problem with one of your devices. Did you just recently install something? Try uninstalling and/or unplugging the device.

If you don’t see safe in the corners, then you are running in normal mode and you just need to change your resolution.

To do so:

  1. Right-click on the desktop (the default area of the screen where there is no window). Or go to start->Settings->Control Panel->Display to get the same thing.
  2. You will see the display properties window, click on the Settings tab.
  3. On the bottom right, you will see Screen area. Select 800 by 600 pixels. On the left, you will see Colors. Select High Color (16 bit).
  4. Hit the Apply. Then OK.
  5. Restart your computer.
