Windows 7: Video quality is bad on my laptop

Video quality is bad on my laptop

When I put a movie into my brothers laptop, the quality looks fine, but as soon as I put it on mine the graphics are horrible. I've googled and no results also.

well first things first.
Try playing it using this player
VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source video framework!

It is completely self contained and doesn't use any of the windows media player functions or codecs.
If it's clear in that player we likely have a media player problem.
If it is also poor quality in that player we likely have a problem with the display.

Bingo, and I bet your power plan is set to save as much battery life as possible too huh?

Try setting your power plan to performance and plugging it in.
I think your laptop may be undervolting your graphics in an attempt to consume less power.
