Why is that just when your computer is going great everything turns to custard?

Once a month I enter Safe Mode to run Scan Disk (Thorough) and Defrag. This time I got the message"Your Display Adaptor is not configured properly. Click OK to start the Hardware Installation Wizard" I have no hardware to install and Device Manager said that the Display Adaptor was working properly. I tried several times - got the same message and couldn't enter Safe Mode.

The same day when I tried to shutdown a screen appeared with only orange bars about 8 cm high in the middle of the screen and nothing else happened. I used System Restore to fix that, but what was it? And I still can't enter Safe Mode.

Any help would be appreciated.

It does suggest that your video adapter drivers may be corrupted.

Perhaps the best starting point would be to reload them?
