Default Computer reverting to SAFE MODE

Hi, one of my computers an AMD with Windows XP OS, keeps reverting to safe mode. It will run fine, then suddenly it will freeze for 5 seconds, and then it will revert to safe mode (im not sure if its safe mode, its like when u minimize a game and the desktops to big for the screen and the qualitys realy bad)

Not sure what the problem is any help would be appreciated

Sounds like a video card or driver problem for sure.
