Safe mode loads the Standard VGA driver, its not somewhat a monitor troubleshooting step but rather a step taken to resolve driver issues. If your monitor displays the first part of the boot process then blanks out while loading the OS it is recommended your boot into safe mode to try & resolve display issues.

Why should you enter safe mode when troubleshooting problems with a monitor in Windows XP?

There would be no reason to do this. I have fixed graphical settings and problems without ever going into safe mode. If the problem is with the monitor itself, then safe mode would have no effect. And if it with your display settings, you need only adjust these settings without the need for safe mode. Try checking for driver updates for your video card too. This can help get a monitor working.

When you enter safe mode a pop up reflects Disable 1 exit 2 Resolution you know the issue is the resolution but when you press 2 nothing happens?

While in Safe Mode, for compatibility and stability the Windows uses a resolution of 640x480 and 60Hz, also known as VGA Mode. Some monitors will display a short text, to remind the user that the current resolution is not the manufacturer's recommended resolution. The monitor may offer you a choice, to exit the current reminder or to disable all reminders by pressing a button on the monitor itself. In this case, monitor button 1 is to disable all reminders, and monitor button 2 is to exit the current reminder. Pressing either button does not cause anything to change in windows.
