One of the things that happens while that logo is on screen is that the
video mode changes from system managed to Windows managed (installed
display driver is engaged). It's possible that your display driver is
having a hard time accepting the switch. When you boot to Safe Mode, the
vgasafe driver is used if necessary. Since this is a very vanilla driver,
it works fine in most cases and in yours.

In other words, based on what you've posted, I would suggest updating (or
reinstalling) the display driver for your hardware.
