    Black and white screen

    Hello Benjamin,

    There are a lot of possible causes why the screen of your computer turns into black/white. This may be an issue with your graphics driver, monitor (hardware) or corrupted system files. For better assistance, we'd like to ask additional information:

    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?
    • Did you make any changes to your computer before experiencing this issue?
    • Are you getting any error messages? If yes, can you send us a screenshot?

    Meanwhile, we recommend using the screen filter keyboard shortcut. Press
    Windows key + Ctrl + C
    to change the color filter.

    We are looking forward to your reply.

    dwm.exe - Black and White Screen

    Last night I was using my PC as normal, and went to copy something with CTRL+C. I think I accidentally pressed another key in the process, though (either X or V). Immediately after, my screen turned black and white. I tried restarting, and that did not resolve
    my problem (screen was still black and white), so I started to dig deeper. I discovered how to create the problem, and how to stop it. I stopped it by ending the dwm.exe process in Task Manager (This is a Microsoft process, it seems). The process immediately
    opened again, but the error didn't occur. All was fine until I went to open my recording software, Dxtory. When I opened it, my screen immediately went black and white again, and remained that way until I ended the dwm.exe process.

    Some important things to note:

    • I'm not sure if this is a Windows error or a Dxtory error. I've updated Windows (build 16299.19) (Updated before this started occuring), Dxtory (2.0.142), and my Nvidia drivers (387.92).
    • Screenshots are black and white as well.
    • When I open a program that requires administrator permissions, the prompt is the correct color, even if everything else is black and white.
    • This effect is not on the login screen, although I'm not sure if it occurs on other accounts.
    • It seems like there might be multiple things that cause the issue, and Dxtory is just one of them (For example, when I logged onto my PC this morning, my screen was black and white, despite Dxtory not being opened)
    Can anyone help me? Thanks.
