Likely its a software issue.  RDP relies heavily on video hooks.  I would first ensure that 3rd party  remote access software is not installed (ultra vnc,webx,gotomypc, various others) they can in some instances cause problems with one another (not often).  Next reinstall your video driver on the machine that crashes  and also reinstall directx on the machine that crashes and try again.   You can also disable shaing  local drives and printers to help with this issue as well.

From your minidump the ialmnt5.sys driver seems to be the problem.

The resolution seems to be well covered above and an updated video card driver may well resolve it, however, if that doesn't work you may find saved backup copies of ialmnt5.sys in one of the following folders:


As stated below, make sure that you find the correct version of the driver. Its likely that there are several versions in one or both of those folders.
In this article you'll also see a number of useful comments, and also the fact that the ialmnt5.sys driver was designed for a number of video chipsets that are no longer made by Intel.  Anyway, see if this helps>
