Monitor gets "no input signal" unless in safe mode.

I'm using an HP Pavilion Elite m9150f, running XP Black.
I recently disconnected all cables from the tower to move around my computer desk, and when I reattached everything and turned it on, it went through all the BIOS text, showed the Windows loading logo, and instantly went to "No Input Signal."
However, in safe mode, everything works fine. I can navigate through everything in safe mode.
What should I do in safe mode to enable it to run normally?

Seems like it's switched to another output on your video card.
Try to power off the whole thing, make sure your monitor is connected properly and then turn it on while it's connected.

Bison is right.

Check your connection.

If that doesn't work, you can goto safe mode and uninstall your video drivers and then reboot... it should auto detect the connection.

If you have a dedicated graphics card ensure that your monitor is hooked up to that; not the integrated graphics on the motherboard. If that doesn't work I would try booting into safe mode and re-installing the drivers for your graphics card.
