When trying to Remote Desktop to a computer (across a Cisco VPN connection) I get a black screen, the logon prompt never appears and it eventually times out and says broken network connection. After that the computer crashes - doesn’t respond to any more remote desktop connections and cant be accessed over the network - shared folders are inaccessible etc but it does respond OK to pings. The computer does not respond at the console either and has to be powered off/reset to recover. This problem is only affecting the Dell Precision T3500 workstations we have, OS is Windows XP SP3.
I thought that the problem might be the nVidia video card drivers. But updating the video card drivers just caused other problems with the displays.
Has anyone else had this problem?
