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

Try upgrading the drivers.

With all due respect John, I am the head of IT and I have it on good authority. If you type "Google" into Google, you can break the Internet. So please, no one try it, even for a joke.........It's not a laughing matter. You can break the Internet.

Sounds like a video card or driver problem for sure.
Change the world. Of one person. Today.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.
