LCD Inverts Colors


Greetings,

I recently purchased an LCD screen as I wish to build a homemade projector. I received the projector today, only to discover that the backlight is only one of the problems. The colors are also inverted. It seems to be a straight-up RGB inversion. I tinkered with the LCD's settings, but there is no "invert colors" setting. I attempted to change the color temperature, but that did not change anything either. Loading the factory defaults did nothing either. I was wondering if there was any way I could somehow invert my VGA output to rectify this situation.

My specs:
Monitor: Viewsonic VA520
Graphics Card: GeForce FX 5200
Distribution: Debian stable

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
John

That doesn't make sense - if the colours are inverted, how would it work as a normal display? Maybe they just look inverted with no backlight.
