Default New MB and screen colors are now bright enough to hurt my eyes

So I installed a new MB and RAM today and now that I got it up and running I noticed that the bright colors on my screen are so bright that they almost hurt my eyes. Its like they are intense. It was never like this before today when all I changed was the MB and RAM. Has anyone else had this happen and is there a way to fix it? Thanks for any help.

I suspect that you reinstalled Windows?

I was always taught to reload Windows when replacing CPU or Motherboard. You are going to a different architecture.

You were right about re installing wimdows. Thanks for the tip I was hoping there was a way to get around that. It only took like 15 mims to install with my ssd but now i have several hours of getting eberything back to the way i like it and to reinstall everything. Its gonna be a long night

I know you misspelled it, but Wimdows sounds funny.

There are programs that install everything you need. I never used them.
