Blacked out login screen

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

 You may run across a server that is blacked out on the login screen. You can still login but it makes it difficult finding the username or password fields.

To fix this you should look in the registry at:
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Colors

You will probably notice that all the values or almost all the values have zeros in them. You need to replace these from another server. You can replace these with the values listed below if you don’t mind the colors. Just save the values to a .reg file and import them back in:

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Colors]
“ActiveBorder”=”212 208 200″
“ActiveTitle”=”10 36 106″
“AppWorkSpace”=”128 128 128″
“Background”=”102 111 116″
“ButtonAlternateFace”=”181 181 181″
“ButtonDkShadow”=”64 64 64″
“ButtonFace”=”212 208 200″
“ButtonHilight”=”255 255 255″
“ButtonLight”=”212 208 200″
“ButtonShadow”=”128 128 128″
“ButtonText”=”0 0 0″
“GradientActiveTitle”=”166 202 240″
“GradientInactiveTitle”=”192 192 192″
“GrayText”=”128 128 128″
“Hilight”=”10 36 106″
“HilightText”=”255 255 255″
“HotTrackingColor”=”0 0 128″
“InactiveBorder”=”212 208 200″

“InfoText”=”0 0 0″
“InfoWindow”=”255 255 225″
“Menu”=”212 208 200″
“MenuText”=”0 0 0″
“Scrollbar”=”212 208 200″
“TitleText”=”255 255 255″
“Window”=”255 255 255″
