i just got a mac pro and am having serious problems with the display
this is my third mac and consider myself pretty mac abled being able to fix almost anything but this is my first mac desktop
basically what happens is that it doesn't recognize that red exists when it is displaying now you might think im crazy but for the close window its just black for the mail badge its black
ive tried everything i can think of and think the only thing to do is try a new cable in the morning DVI instead of DVI to VGA
if anyone has any software thoughts then offer them up
o and by the way the graphics card is a ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT

Are you sure the video cables are properly secured? I've had "red" issues on my LCDs when they aren't.
