Too much yellow color!!!

Hello, I just bought a Win7 home premium 64bit laptop, Pavilion g7 - 1255dx
I saved a image and it is way too yellow in areas, I have a vista computer that displays it so correctly!! videos are this way too. i did try to adjust my colors in the graphics options, no luck. Is this due to a processor ?? it is Intel core i3-2330M processor. I reallllly want to fix this.

This is the picture:: as displayed from my win7 computer in question; the hair is way too yellow, I know the correct color is more of an orange-ish yellow...I mean, the picture is beautiful regardless of color, I am just saying a win7 laptop very well should display correct colors.



PLEASE HELP!

just checked out microsoft's help page for the color calibration, I just wanted to ask you; what settings should I put it on? All that seemed confusing to me a bit,

That we can't tell you as we can't see your display. You have to go through each of the screens to set it too your liking.

Might also want to check the color profiles,

Change color management settings

and try a couple of the different ones.

Oh jeez i am having a problem, on the page it says to
  1. With the Set basic color settings page in view, press the Menu button, which is found on the front edge of many monitors.
    An on-screen menu will appear. Press the monitor buttons, which also appear on the front edge of many monitors, to navigate through the on-screen menu and adjust the different settings for your screen display.
    The menu and monitor buttons vary by model and manufacturer. Check the documentation that came with your monitor to learn how to use the buttons for your particular display.
  2. On the Set basic color settings page, use the monitor buttons to navigate through the on-screen menu to verify (or adjust) one or more of the following settings (depending on your specific display), and then click Next:
    • Locate the color menu that lets you specify the color mode, and then set your display to sRGB.
      If you can't set the color mode on your display, but you can select a color temperature (also called a white point), set the color temperature to D65 (or 6500).
    • Locate the menu to set gamma. Set gamma to 2.2, which is the default setting.
    • If you canít locate any of these settings, locate a setting in the on-screen display menu that allows you to reset your display to the factory default color settings, and then choose that option.
    • If you can't set one or more of the color settings on your display because the setting isn't shown in the on-screen display menu, click Next to continue without modifying any color settings at this time.



Where is all this located??! im on a laptop not a desktop.
