Rainbow/orangish display while gaming

I recently downloaded windows 8.1. I am almost 100% that this has caused some of my games to look like I'm playing some sort of rainbow game. Not all my games do this when I play them, yet i need this to be fixed. I am windows 64 bit. I have NAVIDIA drivers. People are telling me its my graphics card, but i don't know where to look for an update. Could 32 and 64 bits make this happen? How do I fix this?

  1. Turn off HDR/Bloom in the NVIDIA control panel if you have them turned on. I don't believe it will say HDR or Bloom in the control panel, but disabling 3D effects will turn them both off.
  2. I need more specifics. I really don't know what it could be and ill mess this up even more if i start changing things I don't have a clue what are. I do see in this control panel, yet i have no clue what to turn off or on?

    Ok sorry I messed up, turns out that you may need to change the hdr and bloom settings in the game itself under video settings.

    As for what each settings does:

    HDR: dynamically changes the ratio of light to dark on screen.

    Bloom: Creates a glow around lighted artifacts in game.

    When the two are combined, it can sometimes create a strange effect which may be similar to what you are seeing. I have also heard that upgrading the drivers to the latest version has helped to solve this problem for some people.
