Screen going crazy - (hue and saturation?) post installation

So I just installed manjaro i3 and everything worked fine for a couple of reboots. I re-generated my locale to get the dmenu working.

i reboot for the 3rd time, the screen comes up and i can’t see anything. It looks all crazy. I am not sure if there’s a word for it but i am attaching a screenshot (captured from my phone) so you can look at it.

Note - It looks fine until the boot menu and then it starts showing up like this!


i dont know what it was. I kept my laptop shutdown for 5 minutes. restart it and its working as expected. Its been 4 hours now and no issues. I guess we can close this for now but that almost gave me a heart attack lol.
