Does it actually say safe mode? Or just safemode like display? If second reinstall video card drivers.
If first, then do error checking of hard drive.
Then try a repair install.

sorry to take so long, it's actually my friends computer and yes the problem still persists, but only occasionally. It is closing down at when he tries to restart it it starts in safe mode. Other times when the computer has been of for a while it starts normally. Could it be over heating?

Hi,

Did you make sure all the cards, memory, ribbon cables, CPU and CPU fan are well attached/seated in their sockets/slots/connectors after the system got knocked?

If Windows doesn't do a proper shutdown it is 'normal' for it to start back up in Safe-Mode. If all devices are working properly and the problem is Windows is not shutting down properly (hangs - don't see the "It is now safe to turn off computer" screen) let me know and we will go from there.
