Lubuntu 13.10 on Sony Vaio PCG-F540 - Wrong Colors

I just installed Lubuntu 13.10 (alternate i386) in a Sony PCG-F540 
netbook computer (256 megabytes RAM) for a friend.

It appears to run fine, and the graphics have good resolution (none of 
the jagged graphics I've seen on Intel graphics, for example).

But there is one glaring problem:  The colors are wrong.  Basically, 
blue appears as green, and red appears as blue.

When I load a Lubuntu (LXLE) 12.04 live CD into the machine, the colors 
are correct.  Also, trying the Xubuntu 12.04 Live CD (not successfully 
loaded with only 256 meg. RAM), the colors appear to be correct.

Is the Sony PCG-F540 Netbook another instance of a machine where the 
graphics have been abandoned by the Linux kernel developers?

Or is there some color profile that can be loaded?

Only the colors appear wrong (the default Lubuntu wallpaper is green).
