My new HP Envy x2 notebook screen inversed its colours. Now in a pdf- or word documents have white letters and black background. Also staring icons have black background. Everything was in order for two weeks, but suddenly this black and white problem was there.

 

How to correct this?

Hi Askojv,

 

I did this myself by accident too 🙂 I had no idea what setting I changed!

 

I set the 'high contrast' setting when playing around at login.

 

 

To fix this, from the Start Screen (press the windows key)

 

type "high contrast"

Then select "Settings" on the right charms bar

Select "Turn High Contrast on or off"

Then move the slider to 'off' on the setting for High Contrast

 

 

You can also change this from the log-in screen. Click onthe little symbol in the lower left corner, looks kind of like a circle with a slice cut out.

Then move the slider for High Contrast to "off"

 

Please let me know if this resolved it!

my screen has gone negative..at least just the pictures and videos. How do I fix it? It cannot be that hard and doesn't have to cost me $250 or even a dollar

thanks, as an Apple user, the PC is often a puzzle to me. This worked immediately.

Thanks. I did the same thing by accident and this answer helped me set it back. Greatly appreciated.
