Could be, colour change is typical of a pj lamp expiring.
check first the connection lead between pc and pj
to make sure pj is seeing all signal pins on sub d lead.
check pj with video sig input, if thisis ok it's not the lamp failing

Try lowering the resolution of the laptop to 1024x768 from the display settings (start- > control panel -> screen / display)
Also if in the screen settings you see a grayed out display with a number 2 on it, right click and enable it, see if it helps, also lower its resolution to 1024x768, apply and then go to the advanced page, check the refresh rate make sure its 60.
