Remote desktop connection issue

Hi all,
I am trying to connect to our server using remote desktop (the way i always do without issues), however its giving me a black screen, this is after successfully login in, any idea how to get this working without having to restart the server?

Ever tried to login locally on the server? Still got the black screen?

have you tried changing the client resolution? typically I'd update server video drivers but that might require a reboot.

Will ask you to please delete or disconnect the current session of that user.
and then delete the profile of that user (before take a look on data taht he/she is using)

hi piyushranusri,
not sure i understand what you're requesting, however as described above this was resolved by pressing cntrl+alt+end, like suggested on that link,
are you referring on how to determine who/what caused it, in order to prevent it from happening again?

Per my experience, once you got black screen on RDP, the same result on local console.

pressing control+alt+end is what apparently solved this issue, however no clue to whats causing it & how to prevent this in the future...
