    Hi everyone I'm running osx 10.7.3 Lion on an aluminum macbook 2008. I don't know if someone messed up with my laptop but all of sudden my display has a color depth of 4 bit i think, for example the colors of the finder icon are only 4, white, black, cyan and blue if you can imagine... its not a damaged display because while installing software updates colors look just fine (thousands of colors at least). I haven't found a way to fix this help please

    Always download the Combo update IF you have the bandwidth for it. Less issues than the software update method.

    Solved the problem by creating a new admin account and deleting the other.
