Everytime I boot my computer into safe mode the screen resolution is huge.
But it doesn't just happen with my computer. It happened with my friends computer's when I was helping them fix them. And when I got bored at school the other day i thought I'd boot into safe mode and see how things would work. :thumbsup:

Is this normal?

It all depends on how well your video adapter handles the default Windows video driver. Your usual video driver isn't loaded when booting into Safe Mode - rather Windows loads it's own, "safe" driver. Quite a few video cards will go too big, but some will also go the other way and will be too small.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
