I would consult the tv manual and onscreen display.I would have thought that this would be relatively easy to change.

This does look like an American/Japanese NTSC signal (our TVs are completely different to theirs and can't handle the signal). Usually this is done through the Display properties. Start the computer up with the cable plugged into the TV and right click the desktop and select Properties and your should it should bring up the screen. You should see 2 screens labelled 1 and 2. Select 2 (or the one the TV is using) and go into it's settings and change it from NTSC to PAL-I (PAL-B/G is for other European countries and SECAM is for France so ignore these) and it should come out in the right colour.

...........and if changing the tv settings doesn't help, i've discovered in the past that a scart connector not fully in at the back can result in a B&W screen - check
