Problem in multiple monitor

I got a really strange problem. I tried few days ago to connect a multimeida projector to my laptop that was wokring on Windows 7 but it showed the display on only the projecor and not on my laptop. All attempts to detect external monitor or projector filed. Then I boot the pc again with the projector being pluged out and first tried to detect the projector/external monitor. But it reulted inb a very strange thing. Now I cant see on my laptop if I run win 7 normally but under safe mode (and win XP) it shows display. I can see win 7 display only (not on my laptop) if some external monitor or projector is connected. I tried to select the multiple display option but for me it results in nothing. Help me please and tell what exactly to do I really like this win 7 miss to use it on my laptop....... Waiting for a solution
