Windows 10 Static High Contrast Color Display

Dec 2, 2017 6:17AM PST

I booted up my computer yesterday and after a very long update, my computer started flashing lights very rapidly with high contrasting colors, which was then followed by the welcome screen which, which looked like what happened when you use the "sharpen" tool in photoshop too much- just a mess of colored pixels and it's very hard to see anything. The computer is still completely functional though, though kinda painful to look at and a bit more difficult to use because my UI is ****** up. I use Windows 10 with a Nvida Graphics Card.

And get the latest video driver then install that? Microsoft still doesn't understand driver updates. We do that ourselves.

I've been working on this for 12 hours! But I finally figured it out. Open control panel>hardware and sound > NVIDA control panel then go to change resolution scroll down to "apply the following steps" check the "use NVIDA color settings" go to output color depth and change to 8bpc
