Black and White Screen since update

Since the most recent update I have been having issues with the screen I am in turning black and white. When i close and click other screens they too turn black and white. I have to completely shut down and restart to get rid. This is happening several times per day. Does anyone know a fix for this?

Re: Black and White Screen since update

Thanks for reaching out to us, @MAINADMIN.


I appreciate you performing some troubleshooting steps to fix the issue. It’s my priority to help get the normal screen display back.

When QuickBooks displays black fields instead of the usual white screen, here are some things to try:

  • Reboot the computer where QuickBooks is installed.
  • Make sure QBW32.exe is not running in the background when restarting QuickBooks. 
  • Run the Reboot.bat to re-register the program.
  • Update your video card drivers to the latest release.
  • Change the Windows theme to Basic.
  • Edit the QBW.ini file.

Refer to this article for the step by step process: QuickBooks Desktop fields display black instead of white.


If you continue to get the same result, I recommend checking out the articles below for other recommended solutions.

That should get you on the right track.

Let me know if this works out for you. I’m always here to help. Take care!
