My Power Book Pro displayy works well enough but when I am looking at forms the text and the outline of the box for data entry  are so faint as to be unreadable. Sometimes I have to "find" the box  by seeing where the cursor goes to .

What settings can I change or  is this a sign of old age? I have tried adjustimg the contrast contrast but that does not seem to help.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
