My new findings with respect to the above problem. I can still remote desktop with the user account of the local administrator and I can see everything and the desktop appears and everything. But still when I RDP using my own account I still get the black screen for more than 30 minutes and then I get angry tired and close the session. I have disabled bitmap caching by the way. There seems to be something wrong with my user account. Any help will be appreciated.

Black screen w/Remote Desktop

Hi, I know this thread is old but maybe this will help someone.

Using 2 windows XP computers, remote desktop connects but only shows a black screen & the remote IP address in the top bar with the minimize/close buttons. I turned off bitmap caching but that did not fix it. I was able to connect successfully to a different computer running remote desktop.

In this case, the problem was that the computer we were trying to remote in to had multiple users logged in at the same time. Once we got back to the office and logged everyone out and then tried again it worked. So if you are struggling with this, make sure that either only one or zero users are logged in to the computer you are trying to connect to.

Hi, I've been experiencing this problem between two Windows 7, 64-bit machines as well.
I've found that leaving the remote desktop open 'till the screen saving/desktop lock function kicks in works around the problem. When you log back in directly on the desktop login page on the host, the desktop will show again.
Note: In my case, the problem doesn't seem correlated with multiple users logged onto the host (although there may have been multiple sessions active in the past, they've all been closed and the problem still occurs)

So, set the screen lock period to something low and acceptable and you will never have to reboot the machine if you have time to wait for that amount of time.

A real fix would be nice, though!

(I wonder if it's related to the graphics driver/card? I'm using nVidia)

Cheers, Mike

I have also found that if the XP machine you are connecting to has a Legal Disclaimer before the login screen, it will display a black screen when you try to login using Remote Desktop Connection, and may not display the Legal Popup for you to click OK to see the login screen in XP. Either remove the legal popup temporarily, or have someone click OK, on the physical XP computer.

Hi All,

Here is the resolution.

you should turn off the "Fast User Switching" on the guest machine ! that's all.

Control Panel -> User Accounts -> change the way users log on or off -> un-check "Use Fast User Switching" -> Log off / Login back

Hope it will be usefull for someone.
