Server 2003 Error

By hpatel ·
I have windows Server 2003 standard running with one one problem. I cannot login as the screen is black and only shows the microsoft logo.
This is also the case if i try via remote desktop.

I can however map to the server and work via this. Does the same in safe mode.

Have you update Window Server 2003 service pack 1 at

Thru remote desktop since you cannot even login using the server.

Cannot get to load or uninstall apps as we cannot access the server ,the login screen is blank. It does this for normal login as well as via a remote connection.

start by looking in your boot log. where does it hang?

do you have an APC UPS with Power chute business edition? you will have to kill those services before it will boot. (grasping at a straw)
can you manage iut from another computer?
right click on "my computer" click manage. select the action menu and "connect to another computer". enter the name of the computer and hit enter. check services to see which are hung in "starting" mode. Thats your culprit.
