Are you sure that the output when you right click the desktop and properties the screen is not set to dual monitor output in the last tab. If it is set to vertical alignment for the second screen that isnt present it would house all the icons with ease and make the problem you describe. However I am not sure if it would still do it in safe mode.

Where did my icons go?
If all of your desktop icons are missing, right click on the Desktop, select Arrange Icons By, then select Show Desktop Icons
