Windows 2003 SBS Server Logon Screen has Black Background Color.
Posted on 2007-08-11
I have a server running windows 2003 Server SBS Standard. Something has happened to the logon screen field background colors. This screen is the beginning screen where you press Ctl/Alt/Del and then proceed to enter in your password. You also can change the User ID and Domain on this screen.
When I boot the server or return to it after the screen saver has forced it back to the logon screen, all input fields are black in color. Additionally the text color in the logon box title area is black, I think it may have originally been white.
I press Ctl/Alt/Del and type in the password, even though I can't see what letters are being dislayed and can log onto the server. Once I am logged in all input and mesage boxes appear normal.
I have reviewed the Appearance - Advanced Settings in Display properties and find nothing wrong. Like I said this is only the logon screen, after I logon everything appears normal.
