The MacBook Pro does not include a mechanism for resetting the screen settings, but the operating system does include a way for you to restore the display to its default settings. Mac OS X manages the display through two interfaces -- one for colour and the other for the screen resolution. To properly reset the display to its default settings, adjust the settings for both the colour and resolution.
