Is the issue on both the laptop screen as well as the external monitor?

Have you tried removing the external monitor from the laptop and reboot? is the issue still there?

If you boot up from a live USB does the issue persist?

I ask because i want to see if we can work out if its a hardware issue or something with the OS installation.

Hello there I also have this issue. In KDE there is a quick and easy way to set color profiles so on one of the distros I set the color profile to Color space:AppleRGB and it helped with my problem. I am not sure how to set that in Elementary OS.
