If I restart my windows server 2008 through Remote Desktop it hangs totally: no mouse cursor moving, or CapsLock switching. But it if I restart it locally, restart works fine. I don't find strange records in windows Error/Even logs.

What can be wrong?

At which stage during the restart is it hanging? – user3914 Jul 1 '10 at 0:19

Reinstalling motherboard drivers resolved this problem.
