Acer Nitro 515-42 Videos on youtube flicker and flash green and screen changes color

So, this only just started happening a little while ago. I haven't done anything to the computer. I'll be on youtube watching a video, and I'll move the cursor from hovering on the video to next to the video and the video will flicker green. I deleted my cookies and stuff. All of my drivers are up to date already. I don't know what could be causing this. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you. 
Here is a video of it happening: https://imgur.com/a3nMT8L

    Hi!
    @TwoCagedBirds,

    I recommend you to try disabling Hardware Acceleration in Chrome browser. To do that; 
    • Open Google Chrome.
    • Click Customize and Control Google Chrome > Settings.
    • Click on Show advanced settings and scroll to the System section.
    • Un-check Use hardware acceleration when available and restart Google Chrome.

    disable hardware acceleration in Chrome
