    I'm not entirely sure what you're saying, but I will mention that you should not be painting in CMYK. Paint in RGB. You're severely limiting your color gamut by working in CMYK.

    The only real way to fix this is to make sure your monitor is properly calibrated. However you can't really calibrate a laptop monitor to be color accurate, so if you can, I would switch to painting on the desktop and buying/downloading a program to calibrate your monitor. Then you will see the image in "true color" or as close as you're going to get.

    Unfortunately, this won't fix your client's monitor, or the difference between PC and Mac colors. (I'm surprised that there's such a difference between XP and Windows 7 though...) Possibly send a print-out, if you want to give him an accurate reference?
