    Is your whole screen gone to white on black? There is an option to do that in the Universal Access Preference Pane; perhaps that needs to be unchecked.

Hey,  First go ahead and restart the computer to see if the problem persist.  Then if it does.... Have you done any changes to the Dispay settings?  If you have the hardware utilities disk, insert that in the cd and restart. It will run a system check on all video components in the process.  This will help to determine if its a display defect or a software issue.
Hope this helps!

Sounds like your screen went bad.
Close the lid, attach an external monitor, open lid and see if the screen appears on the monitor.

Resetting the PRAM may do the trick also:
You reset the PRAM by rebooting a Mac and then immediately hold down the Command+Option+P+R keys, you will then hear the Mac reboot sound again, signifying your PRAM has been reset. You must hit the key combination before the grey screen appears otherwise it won't work.

Negative screen image

Look in System Preferences for Universal Access, there is a Display option which says Black on White(the normal setting) and White on Black (the setting that has been enabled).

There is a keyboard short cut to change the setting, it involves pressing four keys - Apple, Option, ^ and 8.

Dear Yagerrd, This is a bugger that plagues many a Mac owner with children.  It is not known how the little tykes seem to get just the right button combination, but they seem to do it with remarkable ease.  Sit him in front of the Powerbook for a half hour and...just kidding.  Here's your solution:
Go to the System Preferences underneath the Blue Apple in the upper left of the screen.  Then, just open the Universal Access preference pane (yes, that is PANE, like window pane) and you will be under the "seeing" tab.  Look down the window to DISPLAY and right under the word "Display" will be a little radio button that says Black on White.  Click on that and you should be set to go!
If for some odd reason, this is not the solution, please right back and someone will assist you further, okay? Sincerely, Jeffrey Wrobel
