    Hello, I have a little problem, someone was fooling around with my macbook, and now the screen is black and white. Like a black and white photo, I can't figure out how to change it back to colour. Help please!

    Right, you have somehow triggered one of the Accessibility options.

    Goto System Preferences > Universal Access > uncheck the 'Use Grayscale' box

    If the box is already unchecked, you may have a failed graphics unit.

    Not a problem mate, glad it was a quick fix.

    As a side note, command+option+control+8 only reverses the colours of the screen.

    same problem

    I'm having the same problem, my screen is mostly white with black boxes. Every time I press control+alt+command+8, it just reverses. How do I fix this? I can't see anything on my screen.
