I have the exact same problem here.
MBP 2.8GHz Intel Core i7
NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M 512 MB
(MBP is hooked up to an external monitor, but I doubt this is relevant)
Anyone have any ideas how to fix this?
N.B. I don't think it's anything to do with universal access. The problem seemed to start after the latest Lion update.
There seems to be no end of display-related problems on the MBP since Lion was released..

Universal Access options.

Try holding down Ctrl+Alt+Cmd and press 8.

katrina> Restarting Mac OS X seems to have fixed the problem for me (at least temporarily).
zyriab/shootist007> as katrina says, this problem doesn't seem to have any relation to Universal Access settings...

I'm now fairly certain that this problem, and the one in my other thread both relate to the same issue, which is a problem with the NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M (or similar) graphics card on mid-2010 15" MacBook Pros running Lion, which has been discussed extensively here.
Restarting the computer is only a temporary fix. The 'inverted' widgets seem to be a symptom of the much more serious issue of NVIDEA driver related kernal panics.
I'm going to speak in an Apple Genius this Wednesday. I'll report back here later. I've read that some MBP owners with the same problem had to have their logic boards replaced.

See here for my follow-up to this issue.

I brought it to the Genius Bar and explained that I thought it must be the board or something. I told them I searched these boards and this particular model, Mid 2010 15" MacBookPro, seems to be having the same issue.
There doesnt seem to be a quality program covering this issue, however it IS the logic board.
Bring your computer to the Genius Bar immediately!
Other symptoms I had:
frequent and severe freezing during FaceTime calls
frequent and severe freezing when watching videos online
