Screen colour My problem is that when my macbook is set on millions of colours on the display. The colours are so  bright that it distorts the picture. I set the computer 256 colours in which I can still use the laptop. My mac is 9 months old and I mail ordered the mac from Apple uk. I now live in Spain.

You should be able to lower the brightness, using the slider below the resolution menu. For longer display and battery life, Apple recommends lowering the threshold. But, it should not be making the image distort or have any degradation to the image. If your machine is less than a year old ( and has no signs of user fault or P2P software ) you are eligible for complementary APPLECARE assistance. It makes no difference where you bought the computer. APPLE is international, and any APPLE STORE or 3rd PARTY APPLE AUTHORIZED REPAIR CENTER, should examine and troubleshoot this issue.


Keep me posted.

My screen has gone massive and the colours have gone negative. help me?.................. x


Hi,

That sounds like your video card has gone back into VGA mode, 16 colours and a screen resolution of 640 x 480.

Go into the display settings and try setting the resolution to something like 1024 x 768 and the colour to 32 bit (16 million colours).

If the adjustment cannot be made, it is likely you have a graphics card driver issue. Find out what graphics card or chip you have and download a new driver from the manufacturers website.

Hope this helps.

Bright screen with very low contrast


I fixed it myself, it seems that the monitor have some problems remembering it's settings and sometimes it automatically set its settings to crazy values that are out of the range that we are allowed to input. For my case, the setting that was crazy was the gamma setting since it was set so high. I wasn't able to bring it back to a normal setting so I found a way to do it by resetting the monitor. So to reset these display settings such as colour, contrast, brightness and gama, you need to turn on the monitor and unplug the monitor without turning it off and plug it back in again. It will automatically power on and the correct default settings will be present.

This forum isn't very helpful is it?
