I am having a very similar issue. I just recently upgraded my video card, I load the game normally, at the loading screen after the cryptic loading screen gets locked up, it never loads the game. I have to cntrl+alt+del to shut it down.

However, if I start it up in safe mode, I make it safely to the character select, even successfully logging into the game itself. I can then update my options to fit in full screen mode and optimal quality graphics--and it looks beutiful. Looks like I can play normally. I emphasize that my graphics card is working fine, at this point. Max graphics = very awesome to look at.

So -why- do have I need to start up in safe mode, then change my settings for optimal performance in order for it to work properly?
