My remote desktop connection will not register

Recently, my laptop crashed and I completely restored it to factory settings. I didn't use it much, but recently, my remote desktop connection did not work as I restored it. My school has a server where I can connect to the server, but it has not worked at all and says "the logon attempt has failed. I know it's just my phone because it works on the desktop...


Hi Emily,.

I would say to contact your school TO verify what settings/connection information is necessary for configuring the desktop remotely.

As your question is more complex that what is generally answered in the Microsoft Answers forums, it suits better for Windows Server on TechNet forum. You can also ask your question in the Forums TechNet Remote Desktop Services (Terminal Server Services) for assistance.

  • In windows Vista (Home Premium) Remote Desktop connection does not work correctly

  • Remote Desktop connection does not Windows 7 Home Premium computer connect

    Hi guys,.

    I regularly connect to computer Windows 2003 Server R2 of various computers via remote desktop without problem. However, I just got a brand new computer running Windows 7 Edition Home Premium and for some odd reason I can't connect to the Windows Server 2003 by using Remote Desktop connection. I tried to disable the firewall on both computers with no positive results. My DRC telling me that it cannot connect.
    Can someone give any idea why this computer refuses to connect? Y at - it no service apart from the DRC services that should be running and can I get a list and try to restart their? Is it possible to re - install Remote Desktop connection? Maybe a download for windows 7 because I find only one for Windows Vista & XP.
    Thank you

  • I have a new server and you cannot use Remote Desktop connection.



    I suggest you to try the steps below and check if it helps.

     The problem can also be caused by your security such as anti-virus program or a firewall of Windows /Defender that can have conflicting parameters as to not not to perform certain tasks. I suggest you temporary disable antivirus and firewall and check the result again. You must activate new security that you was disabled programs.
    Disable the antivirus software:

    May also need to do this on other computers as well.

    Important note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you need to disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network, while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

  • Remote Desktop connection requires the password when I did not

    I use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to my Windows 7 PC to computers with Windows XP employees. To do this, I need to put the credentials of the computer XP (name of login and password). It is a problem because the computers do not have a password. They are implemented in order to bypass the login step. How would I go about the use of DRC to connect to a computer without password?

    To connect to a remote computer that computer must be turned on, it must have a network connection, Remote Desktop must be enabled and you must have access to the network to the remote computer (this could be through the Internet), and you must have permission to connect. For permission to connect, you must be on the list of users.

    Have you tried to change the settings of the remote computer?


    Open Desktop connection remote by clicking Start , all programs, Accessoriesand then clicking Remote Desktop connection.


    Before connecting, click Options, and then make the changes you want in the display of local resources, programs, experienceand Advanced tabs.

    NoteTo save these settings for future connections, on the general tab, click Save.

  • Window sizes host display does not restore after a remote desktop connection

    After that my computer has been accessed via a remote desktop connection, the window size for my program do not restore their previous size.  I have monitors of landscape which are larger than most of the remote users.  When they log off my computer, my window sizes are stuck to the size of the monitor of the remote user.  Y at - it a setting or a way to get my windows to restore to their original size?

    No, there is no setting for this.  It's just the way it's always been since Remote Desktop was invented (formerly in the 1990s as Microsoft Terminal Services Client or MSTSC).

    At the heart of the problem is that the programs that run on the desktop have no way of knowing that the display size has changed, and even if they did, they also can't know what was their previous size.  It is not just stored.
