While trying unsuccessfully to install a new HDD on my 400 MHz, Celeron PC I experienced numerous hangups that required me to re-start up in "Safe Mode". My OS is Windows 98. After finall giving-up on the installation I tried to return to my original configuration with only my original HDD. However, now my desk top has the look of the "Safe Mode" desk top even though I am open in the "Normal" mode. I tried changing the display settings in "Control Panel" but am locked out of making changes. Can anyone tell me how to get back the the "normal" desk top?
Comment: Good comments! I will check the display settings and cable as suggested. I did not Knowingly change the display adaptor (but I will check).
Comment 2: No the display does not say "Safe Mode". Windows opens normally but the desktop looks exactly like safe mode.
