Answers :

Umm, im not trying to state the obvious but, have you checked that the colour setting is 32 bit colours (right click-properties-settings-colour quality)? also make sure that the correct drivers are installed for your monitor and GPU (graphics card). check that they are also up-to-date. also check the actual screen menu and make sure the colours are good, fidle around with them (RGB) until they are better (last resort!!!). about the printer...i have no idea!!, check out the properties when coming to print to check its not set as one colour, usually under the colour tab (for some odd reason hehe). check that the colours are equal and that certain boxes aren't ticked, i.e grayscale etc!. hope this kinda helps!
