Unless you tell it otherwise, your camera sets its colour profile based on the colours as seen under natural daylight. If you are using artificial light, the colours will actually be different. Tungsten lighting gives a a yellow/orange colour and fluorescent tends more towards the green. You need to find the White Balance control in your camera's menu and set it for the lighting in your scene. IF you have several differnet types of light, then you might need to work on the image in a photo editing package such as Photoshop or PS Elements.
Search Google for articles on lighting colour casts.
You have your camera set to RAW format. It is not a compressed file, it is a full size file. Opening this in editing programs will either crash your computer or will refuse to open because of the size of the file. They are not damaged but your computer cannot handle the files. You should take them to a photo shop and have them put the files on a cd and consult your manual to change your camera to JPEG format.
The D40 will not take great photos of an indoor event without blurring or noise. You need a fast lens and a high ISO using the popup flash or on camera flash would be ideal but some of these events you can not use flash. All these images I shot with a Nikon D40. http://www.facebook.com/home.php?src=fftb#/pages/Keller-TX/Raving-Design/78762448229?v=photos&ref=ts Learn to use the camera for ur events.
