Why does Windows 8 sometimes boot to a black screen?

Well, I’ve been using Windows 8 Pro x64 on my laptop for 2 weeks now.

Sometimes it just shows a black screen, with mouse cursor, after typing in the password. I can go to Task Manager by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Esc, start Command Prompt, and type “shutdown /r” to restart it to normal.

I tried downloading the hotfix (Fix413812) from Microsoft and it says “cannot be applied on your system”. How can I get the fast startup working?
