RDP-Black Screen problem

By wes ·
When I try to connect to an XP computer remotely through RDP all I receive is a black screen.

If I logon locally to the machine I was trying to connect to as Admin and then logoff w/ out doin anything....I can then connect remotely.

I do not have a black hole router, the computer is not in a power save mode, I can connect to other computers on the network remotely, and the event log give me an event id# 50.

Anyone have any ideas, advice, and or suggestions.
Your input is greatly appreciated.

Yes, and thank you for replying to my question.

Issue is that I am running XP sp2 machines and the Event ID 50 message I get is..."The RDP protocol component x.224 detected and error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client." The MS postings all refer to W2K machines as been effected, xp according to them should not be.????
