Issue solved

When I choose the option 'do not play' in Remote Audio Play back, I was able to connect to remote machine without any issue.

Thanks for the hints.

Another possible cause

When searching for a cause for the following condition, I found the following. For the next hapless searcher: Connecting to a Windows 2003 Terminal Server from Windows 7 or Vista, 32 or 64 bit, and the screen hangs during login. Remote Desktop Freezes When Connecting Through Windows Vista | i.nconspicuo.us -through-windows-vista/ Apparently this problem is because Windows Vista has a low initial setting on it's Auto Tuning feature. What Auto-Tuning does is continually adjusts the TCP/IP receive windows size based on current (and changing) network conditions. It seems that many people have reported problems with auto-tuning causing various network timeout issues with some applications and routers. If you're experiencing any of these problems, you can turn off Auto Tuning as described below. Here's what I did to fix this Remote Desktop Connection problem: 1. I had to create a new shortcut on the desktop. Enter the command "cmd" as the shortcut command. 2. Right-click on the shortcut and select "Run as Administrator". This will open up a DOS window. 3. Enter the following command netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled Here's another version of how to disable auto-tuning as seen on ComputerBits 1. Open up an Elevated Command Prompt 2. Enter the following command to disable auto-tuning netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled And if you find that disabling auto-tuning doesn't fix your problem, you can turn it back on as follows: 1. Open up an Elevated Command Prompt 2. Enter the following command to enable auto-tuning netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal And if you'd like to just view the states of your current TCP parameters, you can use this command: netsh interface tcp show global

Thanks for the tip, mine turned out to be sound as well. Once I disabled remote sound, I was able to get the desktop.

I also was able to resolve this problem by disabling remote sound. Thanks to everyone who posted the solution.

The strange thing is, though, I think the problem was with the local pc's sound, rather than that of the remote computer. Once I had got the remote desktop working with no sound, I thought I would just check the local PC's sound by double clicking on the Speakers icon in the bottom right-hand corner. For some reason, that program hung and it appeared that there was a problem with the sound driver. I restarted the local pc, having to force close a background task, after which local sound was ok again. I was then able to change the RDP sound options to "Play on this computer" and the RDP connected ok.

I've had the occasional problem with sounds not playing on my Dell Studio 17 laptop, particularly following Windows updates, and I know there was an auto update when I switched off last Thursday evening (I hadn't tried the RDP since then).

I had this same issue and refused to believe that the fix was to turn off sound setting. Incredibley, it worked! I created a user account with 7forums just to share the joy!!! Tks.

The thing is hanging again and that's with the sound setting off. I've even disabled some other stuff but no dice.
