Once I start Age of Empires, the colors change drastically - see picture attached - and the game is unplayable. I tried every recommendation I was able to google, none of them worked (including most mentioned "kill explorer" solution). The only one way how to solve the issue was reinstalling system - and the game ran perfectly, when I had no graphic card driver installed. However, once I installed it, the problem appeared again.
- include the specific brand & model (ex: ASUS Radeon HD7970-DC2-3GD5)
- if any over-clocking is being done then provide GPU & memory clocks, and the application used to over-clock
