Hi,
I have a mac mini that boots to either Windows or Mac at startup. While my babysitter and son were home something happened to the colors on the screen. When it boots up to the Mac there is a purple tint to most of the images and the webpage backgrounds look black not white. I don't think its a problem with the monitor, since when I boot to Windows all the colors are normal. I tried playing with the display settings on the control panel and reseting the color with the monitor buttons but that didn't help. The monitor is a flat screen Samsung SyncMaster. The babysitter said my son just pressed some buttons on the keyboard and that's how it ended up like that....
Please help!
R.

I bet it was using the wrong color profile. Eh?

There is no system but GNU and Linux is one of its kernels.
