I used to use remote desktop all the time with no problems. Recently I reformatted my Desktop and since then, whenever I try to use the remote desktop client from my laptop to connect to my desktop, both the screen the client window and the desktop go black. If I stay connected long enough it eventually tells me I lost connection, and whether this happens or I just close the connection before it does, I am unable to reconnect. Even after all of this, the screen on the physical desktop is still black and inaccessible unless I do a hard reset. No hardware changes have been made...the only difference I can think of between now and before I reformatted is that I've been using the windows live mesh service, which has its own remote connection service which may be causing some form of interference.

So far this problem has caused me hours of frustration reading forums pointing nowhere and inaccessibility to my desktop abroad. If anyone can solve this problem, I can't even begin to describe how helpful it would be!

Thanks for any help.
