    My color display on my monitor is screwed up and everything is in shades of blue, gray, and yellow. I can't fix it and I've tried everything. Please help!

    Hi kristinduncan, welcome to TSG, but patience please, multiple threads only make for clutter and confusion.


    I'm going to delete your other duplicate post.

    Just looked at your attachment. I don't see the problem. You are getting a full spectrum 16bit true color display.

    I think what you are concerned with is the "scheme" selection in Display settings>Appearance. Try choosing "Windows Standard"

    I did what you said and restarted the computer in Safe Mode but the colors were still weird. I also checked to make sure the scheme was "Windows Standard". What should I do now?

    The color display looks blue and yellow on my computer, but it is a rainbow on the other one. I'm confused.

    There both normal. The only difference is that in the second one, the original teal desktop background remains. This is configurable through the Appearance page. You can make it anything you like by playing with the manual color control there.

    >>Then it sounds like a Monitor problem on the "blue and yellow" one. The actual displays we are seeing are just fine.
