Hi guys,

For the past week my Macbook has been playing it up - i did a software update and turned my computer off - after a few hours i turned it on again and the screen has gone weird - it looks as though its in "safe mode" everything is either RED or BLUE! i had a look at the Display on system preferences but nothing has changed - i've done several restarts but nothing has changed - i thought something might be wrong with its graphics card so i did a hardware test but nothing was detected - i'm currently typing on a blue screen with a red dotty background!!! any advice?
QUOTE Thanks

Just to be sure...you didn't happen to drop or "bump" your laptop hard recently?

A hard bump or drop can cause problems.
