I'm getting a black login screen on Windows Server 2003; username, password and domain are not visible (only Windows 2003 logo is visible). I'm able to enter login credentials and logon and the session display is normal. Is there a fix for this problem yet?

    Is a secondary monitor set up on this server? Is it set to be the primary display? Also, try doing an Alt+Space then M. This will put the login window in 'move' mode. Then, hit any arrow key first, then move the mouse. This should have the effect of snapping the window to the current mouse position. Sometimes windows get confused about where exactly they should be and this has always helped me.
