    I have the latest gen 15" Macbook Pro. When I first got it in September, I put an upgraded hard drive in it myself. Recently, my display went bad, so I swapped back to the old hard drive before I took it into the Apple Store for repair (so they couldn't say I had voided the warranty). They ended up replacing my display and giving me a new logic board. When I got it back, I threw in the other hard drive I usually use and now it won't recognize the millions of colors option on the Displays preferences pane. I swapped the original hard drive and I see that its registering on there, so its not the display. How can I get my upgraded hard drive to recognize the millions of colors option?

    THanks in advance,

    Dave

    Unfortunately that has nothing to do with it. The display itself is detected, but its not registering that it can computer millions of colors. The drop-down menu isn't even there.

    This would b a good time to mention what make and model the new hard drive is.

    Just a thought...
