Hi chaps

I am having display issues whilst connecting to other computers via RDC and RWW. Basically windows do not display properly. For example when opening a folder it half appears, only by guessing where the top bar is and dragging across will the folder then fully display. I have attached a screen shot to show what I am trying to describe.

A few facts that may help diagnosis:

- It is definitely my computer with the problem - tested using my laptop into same computer via same router with no issues.

- I have the same problems connecting into XP workstations and SBS 2003 servers.

- I have the same issues both via the remote desktop connection client and the remote web workplace (SBS).

- I have tried installing the latest RDC client (KB969084) which has had no effect.


This problem is driving me mad so if anyone could help I it would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks

James

I would start here

How do I change Remote Desktop Connection settings?
  1. Open Remote Desktop Connection by clicking the Start button
    , clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, and then clicking Remote Desktop Connection.
  2. Before connecting, click Options, and then make the changes you want on the Display, Local Resources, Programs, Experience, and Advanced tabs.
especially looking at the display and experience tabs

Thanks for the help but I wish it was as simple as that.

Unfortunately I have already experimented with all settings. I have also tried reconfiguring one of the clients and reconnecting directly via port 3390 instead of 3389 with no joy.

I have recently installed a GeForce GTX 650ti graphics card but I cant remember whether the problem started prior to install.

I have worked in business ICT support for many years but this is beating me at the moment! :mad:

Any further suggestions would be much appreciated.

Well no matter how much I "played around" for want of a better word with resolution settings and everything else I could not re create it on remote to one of my other computers.
I then connected remote to a mate and still cannot make that happen

I do not think it is anything to do with ports etc.

I consider, in view of your experience, that this is worth a try

old article but I think it JUST MAYBE the cause.
Obviously do not nned to tell you precautions re creating new registry entries
