Default Screen Issues (Windows Vista)

Ok, so my sisters friend just finished using my laptop for MySpace, when she finished, she logged off. A few minutes later I logged back on and opened up Firefox, and for some reason there is a brown tint over everything. I restarted, and for a brief second the colour was normal - but then the brown tint came back. It only seems to affect darker colours, such as the Newgrounds page, the taskbar slightly, etc.

I can fix it if I change my display settings from 32 bit to 16 bit, then back to 32 bit again - but when I restart (or lock the computer and unlock it) it goes brown again.

Hello,

What laptop do you have?

Does the same occur in safe mode?

Have you checked the colour levels in your graphics settings, and or colour profiles?

1) Ummm... an Acer?

2) How do I test this?

3) Nope. What should all this look like?
