One login with administrative privledges has display issues. No resolutions display correctly. At native, for example, the mouse can be used to move the file menu into view. The dock does not, however, display at all. I have booted from an external drive, run Disk Warrior 4, and repaired permissions. I used MainMenu to run all maintenence scripts, deep clean caches, and rebuild everything. The only thing I have considered doing, but not yet done, is to reinstall the 10.4.10 update. This does not appear to be hardware as one of two logins works as normal as does the external drive's OS.
