    Laptops are good at getting the video cable pinched by the hinge, this then produces the colour casts you describe.

    Hook the laptop up to an external monitor, if both display the same colour casts then you have a dodgy graphics card, if it's only on your laptop you should look for that pinched cable.

    You should have an external port to plug a monitor in....

    Also - is it near any electro or permanent magnets? Any unshielded monitors or tvs, speakers etc can distort the display too.
