I'm sure you have already verified that they are actually running the same colorscheme, but I'd still recommend double checking by doing ":colorscheme" on both machines. – Heptite May 2 '11 at 17:44

First of all check your screen setting - aren't you using 256 colors on the second machine? Also check the monitor settings.

Then issue :colo vim command and it should read the same value.

Then compare both files using diff. They should be same.
