I was getting ready to go to work earlier today and looked at my computer screen to see that it had a negative image. After screaming at my kids in my head, I calmy asked my older son what had happened. My older daughter said that my youngest son “pushed a button.”
Pushed a button? Pushed a button!!! Something like this doesn’t happen because someone pushes a button! Unless that someone is a 20-month-old boy who likes buttons…
Anyway, I calmly looked through my Display Settings to no avail. My wife offered words of encouragement, like “Did you look in the Display Settings?” To which I calmly said, “Yes, I did.” (After screaming in my head… again…)
Then I did what I should’ve done in the first place: I Googled it. (Side note: I love that Googled is a word that is recognized by autocorrect.)
Apparently, a negative screen image is a “feature” on some Macs. Why? I don’t know. Apparently Apple doesn’t know either, but they did tell me how to fix it. There’s a video below to show you what it looked like.
Don’t you just love it when you discover new things?
