Firstly when I switch power on nothing comes up no welcome screens etc I have to cont/alt/delete to sign in.

Secondly switched on tonight - my colours have gone wierd. People in photos now have purple faces
shock and wink are turquoise
sad this is pink
angry and envy correct colours.

Any clues??

ewwwww. bump. because I haven't heard of that before, and the Geek [dh] is out.
laptop or desktop?

Desktop. I am wondering if some simple cable wiggling is needed but will need to pull out cupboard and fight through years of dust and fluff to get to them. Don't make me go in there!!

am wondering two things (which is very rare for my befuddled brain) one as you say is to do with dust wires, but it is less likely imho as it is working (you haven't had anyone small poking buttons on the monitor have you wink)
The other one is Most Bizarre : move the speakers away from the screen, or switch them off, see if it makes any difference. Think it's the magnetic field that causes it wink

wondered that too, mummylin, but on the whole if they cock up they do it big-time hmm - afaik???

Is there a spare monitor / friends / neighbours you could get your hands on to establish if your monitor's goosed or if it's the computer <gulp>
