    I hope someone can help with my issue:

    - I've got an early 2008 mac pro, and when I now run at the native resolution on my monitor, the color seems almost too white. Lettering gets washed out a bit (like writing text on this forum post). The white bleeds over everything.

    If I take a screen shot and look at it on a different mac, it looks fine - so there's something wrong with my video drivers.

    I can boot the machine into a Snow Leopard build and everything looks fine, but back in my main Leopard build, it doesn't. It's kind of distracting. Does anyone know what's going on?

    Is there any way to re-apply video drivers?

    Thanks in advance!

    You could try calibrating it to your liking.

    System Preferences -> Display -> Colour -> Calibrate...

    they changed the gamma from 1.8 to 2.2 (1.8 is leopard, 2.2 is snow leopard) you can change the gamma in leopard to 2.2 easily
