Hi there,

 

My computer had been asleep most of the day, and I just now woke it, everything went on fine, then about 30secs later the screen changed to a solid, dark green.  I tried turning the monitor on and off, unplugging then plugging back in, tried a different HDMI cable and a different monitor, no change.  My PC is about 4-5 years old, upgraded the video card earlier this year but no problems until now, even with long gaming sessions.  Any advice on what could have been the cause? It's only happened the one time, but I'm worried it might happen again.

 

Thanks.

did you reboot your computer?  I see you unplugged the monitor.

 

sleep mode & hibernation modes usually have issues when waking up for a lot of people.  computer services don't always restart correctly and it causes issues.  it's best to just shutdown and reboot instead of sleep/hibernation.

I restarted and it worked fine, I tried to update my video drivers and it said there was an error with a file and unable to update, so I uninstalled my driver in safe mode, and reinstalled the latest.  I'm just a bit paranoid as my aim with upgrading my gpu at the start of this year was to keep it chugging along until late 2018/early 2019 before doing a fresh build.
