  • Well I logged in directly from the server with mouse kb monitor and my password works there. My guess is the registry is wrong since installing GFX drivers but the problem seems to have gone away by itself. I tried to log in via my client and it works now (?)I can use RDC too by logging in with the same password. This was wierd it wouldn't let me in before

    Have you tried using that password by logging into the server desktop (either with a keyboard, mouse, and monitor or through RDC)?

  • Tried with RDC and can't even connect so I'll try from direct from the server and let you know when the backup is finished I can shut down this PC as I only have one keyboard and mouse

    When you say you "tried with RDC and can't even connect", what do you mean?  Do you even see the logon screen (or is it your client simply can't find the server at all)?
