Windows 7 remote desktop causes black screen and am forced to cold boot
Posted on 2010-01-07
I have Windows 7. Here is the situation:
I lock my computer which we will call computer A. I go to another computer (computer B) login with my credentials and remote into my computer (A) with my credentials. Within the remote session of computer A I remote into another computer (computer C) with another users credentials and then disconnect (keeping the remote session from A -> C up with that user logged in. I come back to my computer (A) and try to logon but the screen is black and nothing responds... keyboard, mouse. I am forced to power off the computer and then it comes back upon powering back on. I've tried unplugging the video cable and replug but nothing. The video adapter has the most up-to-date driver and this never happened in Vista or XP so I'm thinking it has to be something about Win7.
