I don't think that going to safe mode has any effect on picking up for example a virus. It only makes it easier to remove it.
Have u detected a virus recently? And check ur startup registry, maybe there is something that is causing trouble. It also could be a hardware problem, but if it's software related reformatting should fix it.
Hope u get it working.
