You may not be able to access Display Properties in Safe Mode.

You can access Display in Control Panel if the desktop route is not working.

philippo, the message is telling you that the scan frequency you have selected is outside the range your graphics card and monitor combination can handle. You need to change either the number of pixels in a line or the monitor refresh rate.
