    Ok, so After lowering my resolution i obviously set it back to normal high resolution. Just that alone seemed to refresh something and make it all well again

    Mine did exactly the same thing again, using Nvidia 310.54 beta and EVGA 560ti SC. fixed it by reinstalling the driver only over itself - no clean install, no Driversweeper -- just install the driver, and all good again. ?? It's beyond me....

    Hello all, was anyone able to solve this issue without either changing the resolution or updating the driver as I did so and it still shows the same colour error. Thanks in advance!

    Rather than updating the driver, just try reinstalling it over itself - no safe mode, no clean install, just install it again. Worked for me.
