Hi, I've been using Windows for years normally without worrying about updates or the like. However, something happened to my computer last month to where I started getting eye strain and foggy brain, problems which I also had when using PWM monitors, but not since switching to a DC monitor. The monitor that I'm using is one that I've had for 6 years (Acer R240HY), so I'm sure there's nothing wrong with the monitor itself. I also plug in my MacBook Air to the monitor as a placebo, as I feel perfectly fine with that combination. As far as my main desktop though, I haven't changed anything in my setup (hardware or software) for about 6-8 months, so I'm confused as to why this is suddenly becoming a problem now. I even downgraded to multiple older versions of Windows and Nvidia drivers that I know used to work for me a couple of years ago, but I still get the same brain fog. What could have changed in my settings in the last month that caused this?
Side note, don't know if this is helpful or not, but when I uninstall all Nvidia drivers I do feel better, but not as good as when I plug in my Macbook. It's worst when I have the Nvidia driver installed (GTX 1070). But this was never a problem before last month.
