How to invert the colors on my PC laptop? Plus, what else do you recommend to reduce eye-strain that leads to headaches?

I get migraines every once in a while, especially when I've been doing a lot (and for me, that's a LOT) of computer stuff over a few days. When I've got one, I'm really light-sensitive, and feeling better usually demands some medicine and an hour or so in a dark, silent room.
When the main part of the headache has passed, though, I often need to get back online (usually, to finish whatever project had kept me on the computer so much recently). To avoid the little twinges of pain and head off the possibility of a relapse, it would be *awesome* to invert my PC's colors.
I know OSX can do this natively, with Ctrl-Option-Cmd-8 (try it!). But PCs don't have this ability, and I can't find any share- or freeware to do it, either.
Is there anything else you'd recommend to reduce eye strain? I'm using Work Rave right now, and have been for about a month, but I find myself postponing breaks and shutting it off every time I reach my daily limit.
