After installing/updating to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, the display appears corrupted/flashes green


Some TVs EDID reports incorrect support for 12bpc or 10pbc colors format but can't actually support this format. Starting with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, the OS now configures by default the display to its highest reported capability requesting the driver to send 12bpc or 10bpc format where it was using 8bpc in the previous release resulting in color corruptions/green flashing screen/green bars scrolling. To avoid this issue, manually configure your display to 8bpc:

1) Go to the NVIDIA control panel
2) Select Change Resolution panel
3) Select the display
4) Section 3, change to use NVIDIA color settings.
5) Change the Output color depth to 8bpc.
6) Save changes.
