    My colors seem to be messed up. My desktop theme is supposed to be gray, but now its green. I've checked the settings and everything, and updated my display drivers but nothings working. Any ideas?

    If you right click the desktop and choose properties, then Appearance,what does the color scheme say? If green change it to what you want.

    if you went where I sent you, then I doubt we can be of help as there is no "destiny" as an option in any standard Windows install so it sounds like you have added some program or other and obviously that has a problem.

    Set it to a standard theme and see if it looks right. If not, it could be a problem with your graphics adapter or your monitor or the video cable.

    I set it to the standard theme, but it still doesn't look quite right. The coloring is still strange. I'm on a laptop btw.

    I updated my graphics card drivers also, but it didn't solve the problem

    On my current theme, where it used to be gray, the color is a kind or green/turquoise color.

    BTW: when I'm playing games, all the colors are fine.
