Well what do you mean by messing up? I know that I had to change the "video settings" in my Nvidia control panel as I couldn't keep the picture bright enough without making my desktop look like a signal beacon.

You may want to mess with those.

or it could be the fact that your computer monitor screen is way too large which makes your resolution set high in order to match your screen. Then your playing a video on your huge screen that is say...... .32 megapixels and it causes the video to pixelate when you view it in full screen.
