I booted up and tried to logon to a Windows Server 2003 Standard client connected to one of our local servers when suddenly the screen went black as in the color black with the logo of 2003 Server at the top of the black screen. It seemed that I can type commands since there was a cursor blinking, but I didn't do so because I might destroy something. I tried to boot up in safe mode, but the same thing happened. How shall I resolve this?
Thanks in advance.
See black screen as displayed on the PC:
