When you say "safe mode no problems" you mean the monitor stays on, right?

Boot up into safe mode and goto the power management icon in Control Panel. Set it to 'always on' if you can change any individual settings in safe mode on your machine set 'turn off monitor' to never.

While in safe mode goto device manager (System icon on control panel) and click on the "+" next to monitors and see how many show up. if more than one show up remove them and then reboot.
