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?

Hmmm... couple of things it might have been.

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.

To be honest, I had forgotten the newest version was version 9, and so when I saw that link saying it was for version 8 I had assumed that was the version I was on.
