I'm thinking it's one of two things.
1. The monitor is going bad.
2. The video card drivers are corrupt.
Try updating your video card drivers, and if that doesn't fix the problem, I'm betting it's the monitor.
Also, just wondering, would you happen to have the laptop screen near stereo speakers? Reason I ask is, because sometimes things like that cause the screen to change color.

If the problem is inside your monitor then you should not attempt to repair it unless you have been properly trained in TV or monitor repairs. This is because CRTs hold lethal electrical charges long after they have been disconnected from the mains.
However there is a good chance that the problem may be as simple as a poorly fitting cable. Disconnect the cable from the VGA port and reconnect it. If this makes a difference, but doesn't solve the problem then you should try cleaning the cable pins with a q-tip (cotton bud) and organic solvent such as white spirit and then try again. You might also consider bending the pins very slightly with pliers so that they fit more snugly in their sockets.
