So my three year old started playing with buttons on the monitor, keyboard, or both. Now, colors don't appear as they did before -- things look washed out, for the most part. Any tips on what to look for to fix what he did?

If he did it via the keyboard, it may be the "High Contrast" scheme in windows. I think you can turn this on with some combination on the keyboard. Generally this is black and white though, not washed out.
Odds are that your 3 year old hit the on screen display button on your monitor and turned either the contrast or brightness up. You can try altering those settings, or look for a "reset all" feature.
Generally you will have a button marked OSD or Menu on your monitor - look for this and work from there.
Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.
Thanks very much to the both of you. You have put my mind at ease that I will probably be able to recover my data regardless of the problem. I'll let you know what the actual problem was when I find out.
