    Sounds like a hardware issue to me, even after looking at internal directory of MS KB articles it refers to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/934396/en-us the one, it has been fixed there.
    If you have no avail of resolution then try raising a support case with CSS as you have obtained the latest Cumulative Update hotfix on same way.
