colours changing in certain programs!
5 months ago

It's been a few weeks since I last did any photo editing and I just noticed that a photo which I opened in one program, looked VERY different in another. Today I noticed a very distinct yellow colour cast in Paintshop Pro (PSP), but also in Windows Photo Viewer. Even the background "desktop" white colour within their windows has a yellow look. It is not a screen issue - I can clearly see good colours on both screens in other windows. Yet something is affecting the colours in certain programs ... and it only began a number of days or possibly 2 weeks ago.

To test I took a screen-shot of my twin screens showing a photo thumbnail and open photo in Photo Viewer (left screen) as well as in PSP (right screen). Then I opened that screen-shot in PSP and took another screen-shot. Each time the images move from one program where things become more yellow to another program that does the same, they become even more yellow. Image is attached here.

Even the PSP colour checker tool indicates that these are indeed strong yelllow colours - they don't just appear so on my screens.

What on earth is happening to my PC? Is the graphics card going bad? Anyone seen anything like this before? Any help or tips is greatly appreciated - thanks!
