CPU: intel core i7 3770
RAM: 4x4 GB Kingston Xtream Blu 1600 MHz
GPU: XFX HD 7990 (crossfire card, reference card)
Screen: Samsung 6030 40 inch TV with HDMI connection
OS: windows 7 ultimate SP1 64-bit

I had a fresh install of windows with 14.3 beta driver

completely uninstalled that then installed the 14.4, when windows booted up, noticed the pinkish/light purple screen before the desktop appeared, then desktop appeared normally

Decided to do a reboot and see what happens, colored screen came back up, even worse, there was something that looked like a greenish overlay that another reboot didn't fix.

SOLUTION: open up catalyst control center and go to "My Digital Flat-panels" > Pixel format > select RGB 4:4:4 if not already selected, if already selected then go to YCbCr 4:4:4 then back again to RGB 4:4:4

select apply on selection, then yes, when done, close catalyst Control center, do a reboot to check if it was fixed permenently
