'm on a windows 10 with an RTX 2070 gpu and everything was fine and looking normal until about three days ago, then suddenly when I launched battlefront II for the first time, the color on the screen became very faded. I decided to close the pc then as most issues usually fixed themselves with a restart and it was very much late at night so I decided that I was going to look into it tomorrow, but come the next day and the problem persists. There didn't seem to be anything wrong with the screen itself or the HDMI cable, so I decided to uninstall my gpu driver, and it worked! Turns out that there really was nothing wrong with the screen, problem is, the color goes back to being washed out when I reinstall the drive. I decided to try to download an older version of the driver from back in December, but, no luck, same problem as before.

Tl;dr I launched battlefront II which may or may not be related to the fact that now every time I have the gpu driver installed the colors look washed out

I have seen others complain of washed out colors when HDR was enabled.
