Default Help me :(

I re-installed windows and now my computer looks like it is in safemode but it isn't.
What could I download to fix it?

You probably have to reinstall video drivers.

Right click on my computer(on desktop or start menu) and click on properties. For xp click on hardware, then device manager, for vista click on device manager on the left.

Click on the plus sign next to display adapters. Post back what's listed under that and I will post a link to your drivers.

This is the problem with people blindly 'formatting' or reinstalling Windows without any knowledge of what they're doing. You're now going to have to open your machine and identify all of the devices.

Best hope your graphics are on a card, rather than a motherboard. It'll be hellish for you to try and find the graphics chip on the mobo. You will have to get various others from the board though. Oh dear.

Message me if you need a hand with getting the drivers back for your system.

Unless you have a restore disk and this is a store bought computer and they were not to cheap to give you a disk.
