Every time I connect an USB/remove an USB, or connect a bluetooth device to my computer, the screen changes from normal colors to more washed-out colors. This happens every time, and the only way to restore the colors is to put the computer to sleep and then start it up again. This has been an annoyance for months, and every time I connect a bluetooth headset, it stays with the washed-out colors constantly.

I have Windows 10.

Do you guys have any insight/solutions to this problem?

Left part of the picture shows normal colors, right the washed-out colors.

No information is given about the computer but a few things come to mind, one is the amount of RAM/Random Access Memory that is installed, the amount of RAM the video card or onboard adapter is using/has available, whether the drive is being plugged into a USB 2 or a USB 3 port.

I have both USB 2 and 3 ports, and this happens every time I plug it into any of the ports.
I have an ASUS X550J laptop.

Could be a power issue, does it happen when on battery only or on the AC adapter? Have you tried a Self-Powered USB Hub? To assure reliability and transfer speed with USB 3 everything needs to be rated/marked as SS/SuperSpeed.

Does it happen when using Wi-Fi to connect to the Wireless Router? Reason I ask is the mention of Bluetooth, that adapter is usually part of the Wireless adapter in Notebooks. Does it happen if Wireless is turned off, may be a switch on the Notebook or an Fn + another F key that toggles Wireless off or on or maybe on some it may be only an F key by itself. Try plugging the USB device in with the Wireless off.

Some Notebooks have a separate interface device between the motherboard and the display panel and some have it built onto the motherboard itself so it could still be a power issue.

Note: the Wireless adapter, memory modules and hard drive or SSD are normally the only parts easily replaced.

It happens if wireless is turned on and off.
And also, whenever I install or uninstall something on my laptop, the same washed-out coloring takes place.
