    This is my new build and I am experiencing kinks. I have an ASUS VS 208 N-P monitor which is proving difficult to get the right colors etc. However, this is about my MS Offices Suite. It does not look or act the same as the same 2007 suite on my other computers. I am thinking about uninstalling it and reinstalling another version (I have two,don't ask) to see if it cures the situation. I would like advice as to how to do this right...

    How does it not look or act the same? Are you sure all programs are part of the 2007 version and not an older or newer version?

    I have two installation disks and one preinstalled version of Office 7. The one on my build was had been installed on an old XP OS. When I look at Excel, I see no blue color on the ribbon. The rows and columns have no green back ground, the Start button is divided in half. There is some color, in the ribbon on the Conditional Formatting and the Format as Table buttons. Selecting a row turns in black instead of gray. In other words many of the features do not work while other features work in a strange manner. However, the basic spread sheet is still working. I used the oldest installation disk which was on an old ASUS notebook.

    All 2007 versions look and work the same.

    You say the colors are not correct on your monitor and that some of the issues in Office also seem to do with color or possibly brightness, maybe if you fix the color/brightness issue on monitor it'll fix the Office issues.

    Thanks for the reply. I have tried about every combination of the monitor. It has both VGA and DVI and is plugged into the Intel on board CPU set on DVI. I get the feeling that there is something that needs changing in the Office suite. All features (Excel. Word, PP,and Onenote have this lack of color in the ribbon and on the start button. I have ruled out the monitor as all the rest of my desk top icons respond with the correct color.

    How about posting a screenshot and see how it looks in that?

    Looks like you may be running Office in XP or 256 Color compatibility mode. Or you are missing the display drivers for your graphics card or using incompatible ones.
