is this a driver-related issue?

Hello guys!

The laptop has the GeForce 8600M GS and im using the current drivers 177.98 released in this forums.

The problem is with videos that pixelated when in fullscreen mode. The videos are in high-res to begin with (DVDrips/HDrips you name it) and I have watched them in another PC having NO problem whatsoever.

here's a screenshot:

I noticed VLC (latest beta) picture quality being much inferior compared to for example Windows media player.
