Some suggestions:
A Black screen can be resolved in many instances by going to the Remote Desktop connection properties under 'Experience' disable the "Bitmap Caching" when connecting. Can't hurt to give it a try.

The logon screen turns black after you press CTRL+ALT+DELETE to log on to a Microsoft Windows Server 2003-based computer

--------------------

A blank screen can be an indicator of a screen saver running. By default any operational screen saver will appear in Remote Desktop as a blank screen. If this is the case and it won't "wake up" you will likely have to log on locally to that machine and change the power management options for the network card by disabling "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"

>>"Terminal Server can only handle a maximum of 1600x1200.  So if it's bigger than that you'll get a blank screen."

I have had this issue when connecting to A another client from a RDP connection. I found out it was due to some user not loging off correctly..I know it is simple I just thought it could help.

It seemed to a problem with a patch I loaded for different application. I loaded the latest patch and rebooted the Server, and now everything seemed be fine. Thank you all for you input.
