Default Color issues with new laptop

Hello everybody! I just bought a Dell Inspiron 15RM. It has 8 GB DDR3 RAM, an Intel Core i5-3337U Processor and Intel HD 4000 Graphics. I love this computer, however, I'm having a problem. I set it up today, began installing drivers/all the programs that were old on my old laptop, and realized that something was off. After a little more fiddling it finally dawned on me, my color is off! I'll explain it the best I can. It feels like colors are too dark. Not "brightness isn't high enough dark", just, too much color saturation? Reds are darker red than they should be. Vibrant oranges are a darker, duller orange, etc. Only way I can describe it. The display is at default calibration, I tried calibrating it myself using windows 8's calibration tool to no avail. I set it side by side with my old laptop and the color problem is rather noticeable. Does anybody have any idea what may be causing this and a possible fix for my problem?
