Hello,

Yesterday, I noticed there were some extra windows updates that involved my monitor (viewsonic xg2530) and processor (Ryzen 5 3600). I also may have updated the graphics card (GTX 1080).

After my computer restarted, the colors on various UI menus on my Viewsonic changed; however, my extended monitor (BenQ) remains the same.

The phenomena is quite weird, because when I play video games, or look at my background, there are no changes. It only happens when I open a UI for another program. Some noticeable programs are Google Chrome, Discord, and Steam. The colors have completely changed to some green/pink filter.

Screenshots attached. If I take a screenshot, and upload it, the filter applies twice and changes back to normal color on my screen.

If I move a window from the Viewsonic to the BenQ, then it changes back to normal.

  • I have been able to force correct color in google chrome by changing "Force Color Profile" in chrome://flags/ from default to sRGB, but that doesn't fix it for other programs that have changed.
  • I have checked many monitor settings, and nothing has fixed the issue.
  • I have tried turning High Contrast on and off.
  • I have tried changing Nighttime mode.
  • I have tried uninstalling my monitor drivers.
  • I have checked various Nvidia settings
I'll be here to answer any additional questions you might need to troubleshoot my issue.

Thank you,
Noky

Problem fixed.

Solution was to go to Color management in system settings:

Color Management > Advanced Tab > Change system defaults > Select the display that is being dumb from the drop down menu > Click on the profile in the box > click remove.
