    I think that I am not alone when I say "What?!" in regards to this post. Any extra information - like OS version and what browser you use - wouldn't go a miss.

    Do you have a "palette snoop" setting in the bios? If so, how's it set?

    Windows 98 is the OS. I use IE, NS and Opera. I'll have to check the bios.

    And the display is negative in all of the browsers? Just the one? Is the display negative in Windows too?

    Try booting up in safe mode which should use a default driver. Are the colors correct there?

    Are all three colors (red, blue and green) showing up? If not you may have a bad monitor. Can you try your monitor on a different system To make sure that it isn't the problem?

    From Display Properties (Control Panel > Display) choose the Windows Standard under the Appearance Tab and Apply it.
    (I'd of said this earlier, but was under the impression it was only within browsers and the desktop was normal)

    You don't, by chance, have some Navigation Software on the machine with a Night Colors option - do you?
