Please help video/picture quality issue

Last response: in Windows XP

Recently after switching from windows xp to windows 7 all flash videos played from youtube, twitchtv, etc are all blocky and pixelated even when at 720p and higher. Pictures on the internet are slightly blurry as well. It's only a problem on the internet, not when viewing files from my desktop. I thought since this problem started after switching over to windows 7 it had to be related to that so I went back to xp, and even in xp the problem is still persisting.

I've tried many things to fix it like changing video card drivers, screen refresh rates etc and nothing has worked. This is starting to seriously become annoying. anyone have any ideas what the problem may be??

Please provide a complete listing of the components in your system, a.k.a. your system specs.

What make and model psu are you using? Also how are your system idle and loaded temperatures? Are you overclocking anything?

system idle and loaded temperatures are normal. there is no pixelation in games or anything, just on the internet browser viewing pics/streams/videos. there is no overclocking going on. it's a enermax psu. this problem did not happen until i reformatted my computer for the first time in years.

have these questions helped you formulate an answer?

Does this happen in other browsers?
April 18, 2013 6:51:58 PM

Yes happens in every browser, after doing more testing i was watching a file that is 720p quality in vlc media player and it seemed slightly fuzzy as well, although not nearly as much compared to watching things in browsers
