Some but not all programs or parts of programs show negative colors. Some Google Chrome sites do. Some don't. All B&W photos are fine. Adobe Bridge opens to correct colors then quickly changes to negative color. When I hook up monitor it mirrors the laptop screen. Just restarted and still the same. Strange. Any thoughts would be welcom.

I assume your using WIN7 so go to the big button (start button) in the bottom left. Then type "magnifier" in the search bar (where it says "search programs and files") then when you see it open it and click on the cog button (settings) and then uncheck the box which says colour inversion.Hope this helped =)

Hi Ravi: Oh, I wish that had helped. But - no. the box was already unchecked. By the way your avatar is red & magenta but the rest of this page is fine. Correct colors etc.

Thanks Ravi. Loaded it. Ran it. Doesn't seem to have an effect. I calibrate my laptop and monitor with ColorMunki, so I ran a calibration just now. (Desperate because I have to edit some photos), that had no effect either. Again, I'm W7. and it only effects some programs, or just parts of programs, like your avatar, but not the rest of the page. Very curious...

Wow that is screwed up. Looks like an image decoding or rendering problem. Can you try a different browser?

It's not the screen because same effect on 2nd monitor. The effect will appear on Explorer and programs such as photoShop also. I restarted once again and now all is fine. For the moment. But - this has happened frequently. Next time I restart it will probably re-appear. Truly strange

If wrong colors appear on both internal and external screens, the problem could be related to the corrupted video driver or faulty video card.
- try reinstalling the video driver.
- try reinstalling the operating system from scratch and installing the video driver.
- if first two steps do not help, most likely you have a failed video card.

Re installed video driver didn't help. Rolled back drivers and so far it's holding up. 2 restarts later. So maybe it's solved. But won't know for a couple days. And thanks for all your suggestions.
