Hi Rainman, when it goes into safe mode, do you have the "Last known good configuration" option available, and if so have you tried it?

OK, lets see if we can find out what that message is, you should see an option "Disable Automatic Restart" try that and reboot, it should then display that message, if it does, can you copy it to your next post please.
It might give us a clue as to what next to try.

Hi rainman.

1. Right-click on Computer, select Properties.
2. Click Advanced System Settings.
3. On the Advanced tab, under “Startup and Recovery”, click “settings”.
3. Under “System Failure”, uncheck the box next to “automatic restart”.

You need to go to your computer makers website and under there support tab search for graphics card driver download.

You will proberly have to input your make and model of computer into drop down boxes to retrive a list of hardware drivers for your computer.

Once your graphics card driver is updated you can right click anywere on your screen and choose properties and change your resolution and refresh rate.
