You're right, that doesn't make sense that it would work in Safe Mode, but not normally.
This makes me think the issue must be with a program or service that runs at startup (only critical services run in Safe Mode, so whatever is causing the issue is an extra service). It might take a while to narrow down, but I'm sure we can find it.
First, the issue might be Aero. Try switching your theme to Windows 7 Basic and see if that helps (I sincerely doubt it, but it's a good first step).
If that doesn't work, open MSCONFIG, and uncheck anything from the Startup tab that you either don't recognize or don't want/need. Reboot and see if the issue returns. It might help to uncheck them all at first and reboot: then you'd know if you should spend anymore time trying to isolate it (if it doesn't work with everything unchecked, you can rule all those out as the source of the issue).
Let us know your results.
