    Hi, Today while working with an InDesign document it crashed and I had to reboot the hard way. After starting up again the colors of my screen was all twisted and strange. It's like a very high contrast/bad resolution.

    Except for the screen-issue the machine works fine.

    I tried changing setting in preferences/display (no. of colors, resolution and color profiles) didn't work.
    I then tried resetting the PRAM, which didn't have any effect either.

    I tried creating a new user and logging into the account - and it looked FINE!!!!?

    Help! It's probably just a pref-file that need rebuilding or the like, but I have no clue as to where that might be.

    BTW. I work on a G5 PowerMac with Tiger on it.

    Have you tired dumping the cache files, saving that i would move your data and settings over to the new account just for quickness.

    Take a look at the Universal Access preferences in the System Preferences Panel. Play with the slider on Enhance Contrast that might be it. That happened last week for my wife's login for no apparent reason. Unless the cats decided to play with the settings and got the correct keyboard presses!!
