right click on the desktop, choose properties. Then click the SETTINGS tab and make sure the color quality is set to Highest (32bit) and just make sure it's not at like 256 colors or even 16bit..

Other than that, there's very little information that you've provided here so the problem is rather vague without knowing what kind of laptop it is, what exactly he was doing when the laptop did this etc..etc..
