You get minimal resolution options in SAFE MODE.
That's an odd situation you have there.
A keyboard error forcing SAFE MODE I cant hardly fathom. Not even in Windows XP.
Perhaps replace the CMOS battery and fix the settings. You'd be surprised the nutty problems CMOS can cause at the prompt, and beyond. If there's a
chance you bumped the battery socket, you might also check for / correct possible "cold solder joints" you might have caused.
You might leave it shut off, smoke a few cigarettes, pace around, and think back as hard as your brain possibly could retracing your certainty that
changing the keyboard was the genesis of the problem.
And open it up exactly as far as you did before, and any PCB that you might have bumped you "reseat" the related connector(s).
Windows doing flaky stuff like that I most always blame it on software side, but connectors that require reseating can cause bizarro problems as well.
So for that side, and nothing else herein works, I'd go to a proper PC tech forum. Lotso Google God.
But if you decide that there might have been a cold solder joint created, and you're not practiced in soldering, look up the
'repair video card in conventional oven
' technique. (DONT
START WITH THIS APPROACH LOL)
