Win XP RDP Session - Black Screen

Tony Giangreco
Tony Giangreco used Ask the Experts™
One remote XP Pro box one client logs into remote into via RDP now gives a totally black screen after logging in. I don't see any desktop, icons, task bar or anything. I logged into it remotely with Logmein and it appears fine. I even rebooted it, but nothing changes.

Any suggestions?
