The UI turned into yellow

About a few months after installing the system, for no apparent reason the entire UI turned yellow. I really do not know how to explain what it looks like, so I will leave a link here to a image hosting website with a photo of my problem: https://ibb.co/dDLT2bc

I decided that I would not do anything with it anymore and reinstalled the system, so I reinstalled everything and it happened again. I have no idea why it happened, when it happened for the first time, I didn't install any programs or change any important system settings.

If this fail install

sudo pacman -S garuda-update

then again "update" in terminal.

use the proper output format in your post.
Using "~" 3 times above and "~" 3 times below the text block
will provide a readable, raw look.

I found a solution by accident. I entered the BIOS and switched in the "Graphic Device" section from "Discrete Graphic" to "Switchable Graphics". I have no idea what has to do with everything was yellow, but it works now. But thanks for help anyway!
