All of a sudden, from just turning it on today, my laptop (a dell inspiron) now only works in what it calls 'safe mode'. This has literally just started, and no amount of turning it off and on again has fixed the problem. When I turn it on it loads up to the windows welcome screen, but instead of loading my desktop the screen goes completely black, sometimes with the mouse still on screen that I can move around. When I force it to shutdown, something in it bleeps loudly.
(Note: I don't know if this might be related, but I've been having problems with my screen for a while now where it goes all pink and green, I know this is the wire between the screen and whatever it plugs into being loose, I just haven't gotten it fixed yet, but it's never done this and gone all black before.)
Please help!

Could be a corrupt user profile, create a new user and see if that work
Could be something running on startup/services. download and run ccleaner (tools - startup) to see if something can be disable.
Could be a bad driver, update the driver.
