Just in the last few days my screen will turn blue for a second then come back. It will do this several times in a row (anywhere from 1 to 10 times) then it will stop for a little while sometimes a few minutes and sometime several hours. I haven’t changed anything on my system.

Has anyone seen this before?

is your highlight color blue?

She figured out that the only way to keep from being frozen was to stay in motion,
and long ago converted most of her flesh into liquid.
Now when she smells danger, she spills herself all over, like gasoline, and lights it.

my highlight color is green. I have turned my hot corners off thinking that this might be the problem but it didn't help. my background is the same blue color. It's almost as if everything (including my background picture) fades away leaving just the blue background, then it all comes back.

My screen has been fading to a blue screen for about 4 seconds off and on about 5 time in a row. It started after I had switch my ram cards in my imac. I shut my computer off earlier today and tried to make sure my ram cards were secure by pushing them in as much as I could without breaking them, and my computer has not faded to blue now today yet. I will let you know if it tries doing it again. If anybody can clarify this let me know.

Did you get to the bottom of this - mine has started doing this today without any reason - I too added in RAM recently though I made doubly sure it was all seated correctly

Pull the modules and reseat them again and see if the problem goes away. Memory slots on the iMac, MacBook, and MacBook Pro machines are real snug and sometimes require effort to get them seated properly. Just be careful not to apply too much pressure so as to break the module or damage the slot.

Regards.
