Login in screen character change


  • Trying to get logged in to our Server 2012 after having to shut it down (storm system rolling through) and are now getting a random assortment of blocks and characters.

    We can't access anything further beyond the log in screen as it will not take a user name and password, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advanced!

  • Not sure what "random assortment of blocks and characters" is . Please post a picture of this if possible so we can understand what happens exactly. I suspect it has something to do with video card. As you cannot local login, have you tried log in this server via Remote Desktop and look into events for clue.
