and see if it changes. Those odd colors bleeding in look fairly typical of some LCDs. Of course make sure you're using it's native resolution. As well, MS has a cleartype tuner program you can download and see if it makes a difference.
When I go to a site with a dark background and white text, and text looks blurry and discolored, giving it that red and green around the edges look. When I highlight a part of the text, all the text on that particular line then becomes slightly bolder and looks correct. I checked to make sure it wasn't the NoSquint addon causing this, and it wasn't. It still did it when I disabled it. I have cleartype enabled.
