I am having the same trouble; and Cables are fine.

Was working fine until I touched the 1 or 2 on front of monitor;

***Color and DVD's operate fine and in color when running old OS9

OS 10.5 is where the problem is on "any monitor" now that I hook up;

Occurred after buying a new ViewSonic flat screen monitor , but seems that though it may have caused the issue, is not the issue.

Color is fine until I log in. Then changes to B/W and also effects DVD play by slowing it where the DVD movie barely plays.

Resolution is 1920 x 1080 60 hrtz

Tried "Memory Recall" on monitor settings - to no effect.

Any help would be appreciated.

Additional Note:

The first thing that occurred is that after pushing the 1 or 2 button on the monitor, the screen turned completely Black with a notice in the middle of the screen stating: "OUT OF RANGE"; The escape and return keys would not remove the black screen and you could not see the cursor arrow;

I had to rehook up the old monitor which was just black and white to shut down and restart; the escape button began to work occasionally to return the flat screen to black and white viewing; Other times would have to unhook the computer.

OK; I have been able to narrow the problem a bit;

Since the screen went to Black and White only after I logged in, I created a new "USER" profile under "ACCOUNTS" in "SYSTEM PREFERENCES" in the "Apple Menu"

The screen remained in COLOR.

So it seems that it is a USER setting is what had been affected;

I am unable to figure out how to remedy;

Any help would be appreciated.

Probably best to repost in the MAC (it'sa mac?) forum. This thread's old anyway.
