Purple-ish desktop screen after clean-installing the newest 19.5.2 drivers

Hello there. It has happened to me around 3 times now and sometimes it doesn´t even happen, maybe its not a big deal but I just want to make sure. I tried searching for information in regards to this but I was unable to find anything.

I have installed with a clean installation (using DDU in windows safe mode) the latest AMD GPU drivers (switching back and forth from 19.4.3, 19.5.1 and 19.5.2) and sometimes I get the desktop completely "painted" in blue right after the installation has been performed, the screen blinks as the installation is being done, as usual, the screens turns to a blue-ish tone (see attached images), switches back to a normal mode, then back to blue-ish and stays like that UNTIL I RESTART THE PC, then color comes back to normal.

Has that happened to anyone? Could that be considered normal or definitely something is up? It has never happened to me prior to 19.5.1 and it occurs regardless if I choose express or customized installation options. I don´t see any major issues in performance or problems while launching games, but that happening to me definitely made me a bit concern.

Thanks in advance for any insight provided.

Roxor, I had the same issue with these drivers (pink screen specially via HDMi) but now I install only via Windows Update from Windows 10 and the new drivers are perfect !

I get the same with a DVI monitor (plugged to either DVI or HDMI on the graphics card) and latest drivers under 1903, at least since 19.4.1 on a RX480. Either purple/blue, red/black or green/yellow screen.

If you do anything to restart your monitor, like re-plugging or changing resolution it should go back to normal before a reboot.

You'll also see crazy colors just for an instant over the welcome screen right at log in.

Just wan't to say that I experience this purple/pink screen as well. First time I saw it was reinstalling 19.5.2 drivers for my Radeon VII and after that when waking up my screen. However for me it's usually fixed by turning both monitors on and off again.

Same here (yellow/green) on Win 10 (1903) and RX 570 after DDU clean install. OK after reboot but 2nd problem of no audio, looks like 19.5.2 failed to detect my Denon AVR on the HDMI, hard failure no AMD audio driver installed. Went back to previous version all OK and did an AMD clean install of 19.5.2, no desktop colour or audio problem this time and so far all looking good.

I had same problem here. When i was installing 19.5.2 on my rx570, my screen swiched to pink or green. And when i enter the login screen, it flashes pink or green. I came back with older driver, it didn't happen again.

Same issue here, seemingly not random at all.
