From your description it's not clear what the problem is. After you see that "streaking line" and the black background screen, do you reach the logon screen - or - is your PC hanging ? If so, restart in Safe Mode. Can you reach the desktop there ?
BTW, by "hotfix 2" do you mean SP2 (service pack 2) ? Anyway, what you see in the first screen on boot is called BIOS POST and that's independent of the installed operating system

Hello, i updated my windows with the 'hotfix 2' and i ran into the problem after restarting my cmoputer. Usually when i turn on my comptuer, it'll start loading the drive specifications etc... in the beginning and it'll go in to the login screen. Well windows reads the drive specifications and at the part where it's supposed to go the login screen, there is a line that streaks through the screen and it becomes a blank screen (all black). Is anyone familiar with this problem, if so your help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time...
