    Hello!

    I have an issue with my colors, and it happened soon after I installed the latest updates today. The colors on my screen are all blown out (the whites, grays, etc), and it makes it very hard to see anything.

    I have a Mac Mini, bought it in 2011, and haven't had any issues until this afternoon. I installed the updates, clicked "ok" when they were done, and then left the computer for a few hours. I came back, and bam, the colors were so blown out. Could this have something to do with the update...or is that just a coincidence?

    I searched around on a bunch of forums and didn't find any real solutions. I've tried recalibrating, going to "Universal Access" to set the contrast to "normal"...but nothing is working. And actually, I have it set to display "black on white" just so I can see this page and type this out.

    Also, I connect my monitor (Westinghouse LCM-22w3) with an adapter through the Thunderbolt port. Don't know if that matters much.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Connecting the monitor to the thunderbolt is the Apple adapter...thunderbolt to VGA, I believe.

    My apologies of that is wrong...I don't have a whole lot of knowledge of the correct terms. I use this thing for a few specific tasks (design & the internet), and I don't have a ton of indepth knowledge.
