Adding 2008 Domain controllers to a win 2000 domain

By cmetrav ·
I recently added a win 2008 domain controller to my network. After trying many things after promoting the win 2008 server to a DC it will no longer give me any thing other then a teal screen when I log on to the 2008 DC. the win 2000 DC still works just fine but the 2008 will allow me to login but do nothing. I get a blank desktop and can click ctrl alt del but can not even start up task manager. I just get the blank desktop. I am can login with safe mode and it will allow me to see all my icons and such but not when running normal. Any ideas for me????
