When I boot up my windows 8 laptop and open the desktop after a min the screen color changes slightly. It's not a big change but it has me concerned. I turned off my wifi and restarted my computer and it still does same thing. Should I be worried or am I just be over paranoid . Also the last time when I restarted my computer an new desktop icon just appeared I attached a photo of the new icon. Also idk if you can tell much of a color difference with the pics I took with my phone but I tried to take pics of the screen. Also this last time I restarted the laptop the home group icon is now gone

Hi,

I can see a difference in the colors. The right hand picture seems to be fully colored while the otherone looks like it needs one more pass.

Can you give us some specs on your computer - the hardward?

thanks

What is the make and model of this computer?

 

Please use the instructions at Windows Support to set the computer to boot into Safe Mode when it is restarted.

 

The reason for doing this is because Safe Mode has a limited amount of drivers and applications when it boots up.  The graphics driver is one of which is native to Windows.  If the color shift doesn't occur when you boot into Safe Mode the problem will most likely be with a graphics driver used in normal Windows.

Hi,

Make and model of your computer, amount of RAM installed, size of the hard drive, security program installed - just the basics

Thanks

Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.  When  FileHippo opens, click on Download latest version in the upper right pane.
 
When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.
