Anything in the Event logs? I don't think you can get to this point in
Safe Mode, but it might be worth a shot.

I'm guessing that you have a driver conflict between the video driver
and Nero. And either going to newer or older drivers (both Nero and/or
video drivers) might be the way to go.

You could also try that Performance slider under the Display Properties
as well. As that would probably fix it, but changing the driver(s)
version(s) would probably be better if possible.
