    Cat ran over keyboard and My screen has turned black and white negative...
    Hi,

    This is my first post, so apologies for being dumb. I have Mac OS 10.3.7 and my cat ran over my keyboard and now the screen looks like a black and white negative. I don't know how to get rid of it! The login screen is fine and in colour, as is the other accounts, but my main account is stuck like this! Anyone know how to get rid of it???

    It is under Universal Access where you can set your display to black and white or grayscale. This is for people who have bad vision who can't see everything clearly in the color

    The screen looks really nice in black and white its abit like the 'blacklight' screen saver that I have but then that also slowly changes colour. Your cat must be a OS X expert and wanted to show you some extra features of the system.

    would a black and white screen save on battery?

    ...They would probably just remind you of the keyboard 'shortcut.' The fact that we memorize these things off the tops of our heads is terrifying. But lmao. I guess your cat figured, 'If I can't see in color, neither will my owners!' Shows that smart kitties are Mac users.

    You probably cat'ed a binary file which is not advisable ... Use 'strings' instead
