powerpoint 2003 and 2007

I have a powerpoint presentation which I print from powerpoint version 2003 and 2007 on different computers. The printing is done on the SAME lexmark printer using the SAME driver settings
The problem I am getting is that a graphic in the presentation (a blue bar with a gradient edge) prints as a light blue colour from the powerpoint 2003 (the same colour as it looks in the powerpoint slide) , but in powerpoint 2007 it prints as a solid object and much darker - blue / black.
The second print is what is needed but I cannot get the powerpoint 2003 to print this way and I do not want to have to change all the presentations - the customer does not want this either.
Can someone tell me where to look in the powerpoint 2003 / 2007 software settings for colour management

Maybe look at the Print Options in Office Button > PowerPoint Options > Advanced

High Quality perhaps?

Checked that - not the answer
Hm, I'd have thought that high quality would resolve it. Bummer.

What if you create a PDF of the preasentation in PPT 2007? Use PPT's Save As PDF option, then print the PDF and see if that does any better.
