    Hello,

    I was working on my powermac g4 this morning, and all of a sudden my computer went into a strange display mode. It appears to be using a small number of colors, but in system prefs it is still on "millions" of colors :confused:. Help is appreciated!

    Thank you

    Check to see that your video cable is tight on both ends, or switch in a new cable and see if the same thing happens

    Solved!

    Thank you for the help! I went into universal access, and found out that the contrast had turned all the way up (wasn't me:D). Looks like normal now.
    Thanks

    Were the screen's colors inverted?

    Looks like you might have accidentally hit the key combo - "Control, Alt, Command, 8".
