Remove PC Errors

Run a PC Scan with Restoro Repair Tool to find errors causing security problems and slowdowns. After the scan is complete, the repair process will replace damaged files with fresh Windows files and components.

Disclaimer: to remove errors, you need to upgrade to a paid plan.

Lots of laptops and custom PCs (the latter rarely) come with the pre-installed software. There are various OEM applications that are there to improve the experience and speed up the workflow.

That way, they make sure that their hardware will perform without driver issues or other software inconsistencies.

Sadly, lots of them are bloatware, and Windows 10 deals with the peripheral and input/output devices without them either way.

Furthermore, they can mix up system settings or, as it seems to be the case, even recalibrate the screen colors. In this case, chances are that there’s the associated built-in software that deals with the display configuration.

This software needs to either be disabled or to go. Navigate to Search > Control Panel > Uninstall a program. Once there, look for all display-associated tools and uninstall them.

You can’t open Control Panel? Take a look at this step-by-step guide to find a solution.

4. Recalibrate display colors

In the end, there’s only one remaining thing we can suggest concerning this particularly resilient red tint hue.

Take a closer look at GPU controls (ATI Catalyst and Nvidia or Intel Control Panel) where you can reset the color settings and look for changes.

Once there, you can manipulate settings and maybe fix the problem on your own. The red tint should disappear in no time.

In addition, there’s the built-in Windows tool for display calibration. We’re talking about the good old wizard tool, which allows you to calibrate the display colors to your liking.

To access it, just type Calibrate in the Windows Search bar and open Calibrate Display color from the list of results.

That’s it. Finally, don’t forget to tell us whether writing this was a worthy effort or the screen is still infuriatingly reddish. You can do that in the comments section below.
