Safe mode has a text like "safe mode" in the 4 corners of the screen. If you say your screen looks like safe mode, do you mean it has that same text in the corners of the screen? Or do you mean something else?
If it's only the resolution that changed back to 800x600 or so, set it back to what you want. Right click on an empty part of the deskto, choose properties, and find the tab with the resolution slider. Slide it to what you had.
