Blue Tint to VGA?

I have a Compaq Presario F739WM laptop with VGA port.

It has a NVidia Neo GeoForce Go 6100.

I am attempting to connect the laptop to my Sanyo 50" Plasma DP50740.

When I hook this laptop up to my RCA L32HD31R 32" RCA LCD, it works great.

When I hook an older laptop I have to to the plasma it also looks great.

Because I'm hooking another laptop to the cable, I doubt I have a bad VGA cable or bad TV.

Yet, the minute I hook the Compaq to the Sanyo, I get a randomly blue tint, that will no go away for anything.

It's not Windows 7, because even the BIOS screen words, that should be black are blue.

I've tried everything, yet nothing works.

Are you using the same cable? If so check the connector on the TV/Display that show the Blue tint.

Well, I checked to make sure it's tight on the TV end by removing it and re-securing it.

Though, there is no blue tint at all, when the other laptop is hooked up.

It is the same cable though.

Try a different cable and see if you still get it.

A new cable provides the exact same results.

What I tried now, gave me some interesting results.

If I shut the computer down completely, connect VGA, the BIOS letters are blue. Yet, if I leave it kinda sit there for a minute or so, suddenly the TV gets adjusted to the normal colors.

If I go in to Ubuntu Linux, the colors seem to stay normal.

If I go into Windows 7, all the sudden the Blue comes back to stay.

Windows 7 mixed up colors are for example, Mozilla Firefox's Green Status line, as orange instead, even though it's clearly green on the laptop's monitor.

I did noticed when the colors are right, it looks beautiful better than the laptop's own monitor.

EDIT: It's Windows 7 or the Display Driver.

I on a hunch figured hook up the laptop again to my 32" which I haven't since I had Windows Vista, and low and behold, the same wrong colors.

I guess the blue BIOS is something different and goes away anyway.

This is just one of those things that I haven't seen before.
