Nobody is using your computer, so you don't have to worry about that. To change your computer back to normal hold down the Control, Option/Alt, Command, and "8" keys. This will change your desktop back to its normal state

The desktop looks quiet mutch negative, and white colors changed to black and black colors are changed to white. please help me

Knowing what operating system you have would make this easier but I'll give it a shot. If you have a Mac press control+option+command+8.

If you have a PC then it may be a more serious problem. It could be anything from a damaged video card to some changed settings. Without knowing what you have for a computer/OS/video card it will be hard to pinpoint exactly what would be causing the issue or to give you troubleshooting tips.

My screen looks like a photo negative..I have a Toshiba Satellite.

Right click on your Desktop, click on Properties, then go to the Settings tab and set the color to 32 bit True Color.

It sounds to me like your display settings are set to monochrome/black and white.

Best Regards,

My desktop looks like negative photo shot?

Aldanipio2 is close. You go to...
  1. System Preferences
  2. Click Universal Access
  3. Click Black on White (Yours is probably set to White on Black)
You many have gotten into this mode to begin with by pressing
Try that key combination and you will see it toggles you between positive and negative image. This can often trigger itself accidentally when the key command is similar to that in another program. I often find whenever anything visibly strange happens to my desktop, Universal Access is the first place to look.
Best of Luck.

Memory stick

Have you actually loaded them to the computer then loaded them back onto the stick? Cameras cant read images very often when loaded back from the computer- because they changed image type from EXIF[camera] to JPEG normal computer image file. This should not prevent you getting the printed however.
