Have you tried holding down the power button for absolutely ages??

I've had this probem a few times.

To get the Menu up to select Safe Mode, Boot Normally etc press F8 while booting. (You may find you have to keep tapping it fast rather then holding it down)

If it still insists on safe mode then it must have a fault.

One of the Menu options will be "Use Last Known Good Configuration" which might sort it out. Otherwise post more details. How did this begin?
