RDP on server not working properly.
When i RDP into the server i can only see half of the windows login screen.  everything else is black.  I am on the same LAN, at the same site, and we have restarted the server.  The issue still persists.  any ideas?

    Have you tried from another computer?

    does it work if you do Start - Run -> mstsc /w:1024 /h:768 /v:ip-address-of-server /admin (or /console instead of /admin if you run older mstsc)

    xCyberFreakx :-

    Have you tried mstsc ---> localhost on the server = what happen if you tried the same.
    Are we getting any event i.d or error like TERM DD - 50 or something like that?
    Is this happens for any perticular user or for all users?

    Please let me know if any error is there and elaborate more if you can.
