Unable to reset high contrast screen mode to normal. Regular screens ...

I got into this mode using the leftshift, left alt, print screen keys. Got into high contrast mode. Cancel fails to reset to normal, but rather resets to a high contrast mode.

I was having this problem, too. I fixed it by first making sure High Contrast was off.

Control Panel -> Accessibility Options -> Display -> Uncheck the box next to "Use High Contrast"

However, my colors were still very strange, although partly back to normal. To fix this, you need to change the color scheme.

Right Click Desktop -> Properties -> Appearance -> Scheme, then select a standard setup.

That's how I fixed mine. I hope it works for you.
