I have no idea what I did to cause this, but all of a sudden, both of my monitors are displaying all of my RAWs, jpegs, and tifs extremely dark with a ton of contrast. They look fine when they're exported, but there is something going on with the way they're handling the files and I have no clue what to do. 

 

I believe it was doing this one time before and I found that windows had HDR checked on, so I turned it off and it fixed it. HDR is not turned on. Literally everything else on my computer is completely normal. I tried completely uninstalling and re-installing lightroom, camera raw, my graphics drivers. I'm lost.

 

Any ideas? The top photo is a screenshot of how it looks (now) in lightroom. The bottom is how it looked before (normal) and exported as a JPEG. If I were to export any file it looks normal and not like the preview i'm getting.

I figured it out from some other posts on here. It was the monitor profile being corrupt or just not working. I followed:
