Help With playback on New Notebook!

Hello,
I just got myself a new DELL Inspiron 8200 notebook P4 1.8 384 RAM Video Card : 32 MB DDR 4XAGP NVIDIA GeFOrce2Go
This is my second DELL my last one had a 16mb ATI rage mobility card and the playback was beautiful. This new one the playback sucks all the blacks are swarming with statick and what not. What's up?? Can any one give me help on what setting I should change to get this looking good?
Thanks in Advance

maybe you need to set the color depth to 16bit or 32bit (if it's set any lower that could be causing the problem). i wouldn't think that you should have any playback problems with that video card.

ok Accelerator is on full acceration. Screen resolutionon my desktop is set to1600X1200 32bit. You think going down to 16bit will make a differance? I'll try if it works I'll post here (I think I tried it allready)

1600x1200 sounds awfully high too. try turning it down a few notches and I bet the quality gets much better.

I've tried everything everyone has suggested and no luck> As far as I know it doesn't matter if your desktop setting are higher then optimal for the player the player will adjust them for you. it doesn't matter anyway I tried and nothing :-( thhis is really bumming me out
