I upgraded my laptop to xp pro but now the screen is really dark. The brightness is at full. When the laptop boots up the windows logo is shown fine full brightness and colors. If I boot up into safe mode no problems. Is there anyway to fix this.

Can you tell us what brand/model laptop you have, what the original OS was, and how you obtained/installed XP?

And are you using correct drivers for the video card, and have you adjusted the drivers settings perhaps?

Is it running a power saving mode? IS there is difference between running on battery and plugged in?

try pressing (together) the Fn key (at bottom left area, usually has a blue square surrounding the word Fn) and the "bright up" key (looks like a sun with a triangle pointing up, usually also a number key) multiple times until your screen goes bright

oops didnt see brightness is at full and safe mode's fine

must be your driver - either lies within driver settings or corrupt driver. try downloading the latest driver and installing that.
