Remote Dsktp monitor error after logoff

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.work_remotely (More info?)

I'm having a problem with remote desktop on my computer where when I come
back to my computer after having been logged on remotely from another
location and type in my windows password to use it, the monitor goes black
and says it can't recognize the video signal. I am forced to restart the
computer by powering it on and off. Has anyone encountered this problem
before? I'm running Windows XP Pro SP2. Any help appreciated...

    i have experienced this issue before.
    please see if you have fast user switching enabled or disabled - then try
    the opposite...
