Display settings in SBS2011

We have a SBS2011 server that, for some reason, has the display settings messed up.  The original desktop comes up fine, but when running certain apps on the server, the information is unreadable because of the colors being utilized.  Sometimes, options appear to be blank, until I scroll the cursor over the option.  Windows Server Backup is almost unuseable, as check marks do not display, messages are unreadable, etc.

I have tried changing display settings and sometimes improve the situation but often make it worse.  Is there a way to reset the display color settings to a default value?  My trial and error seems to make things worse.

This happens when I log in using Logmein or if I establish a Remote Desktop session.

Hi:

Are we saying that from the server console all the colors and display settings are as expected?  Then the issue may be with the remote system,, not the SBS itself.  Have you tried alternate remote systems?

For SBS RWA there are settings on the second page just before making the connection for screen size (and maybe others, I forget).  LMI has similar settings iirc.

Also, be sure you have the latest mfg drivers for the video in both systems.

A reboot of the server resolved the issue.  My apologies to the board for not doing this first.
