I have Win XP Pro. When I go to safe mode, the monitor is so fuzzy(3 lines for 1) that I can't read the screen. Are there any settings that I can change so that I can read the screen? My monitor is SVA and works fine in full mode.

Welcome to BC
When you go into safemode, only the drivers need to run are loaded. It sounds like your monitor or video driver aren't being loaded for some reason. Is this onboard video or a video card?

This is a video card that came with a Sony VGC-RB62G with 128 MB Video Memory.

I went to device manager in full mode and uninstalled my monitor drivers. My display then looked like my monitor in safe mode. Therefore it looks like the display drivers are not loading in safe mode. Any recommendations?
