Poor Screen Coloration

Issue : Attempting to upgrade to Win7 from XP Pro
All seems ok except extreme screen coloration problems at 800x600
which is the only display setting allowed.
Under XP Pro SP3, on a different HDD, there were no screen issues
and the Monitor ( HP vx74 ) performed as expected.
