I have an issue and not sure if it is a internal, external, or a video issue.

The issue is...
Computer is set to maximum resolution, when seeing a video through VLC, its okay but not great.
But when I hook up the laptop through an hdmi, the video looks great(on the external monitor).
What can cause it or what resolution is there so the video can display the same onto the laptop screen?

Windows 7 64
Ram 8gb.

Intel HD Graphics 3000
Maximum Video Graphics 1696MB
Graphics memory in use 276MB
Driver version 8.15.10.2476

First off, post the brand and model of the computer that is giving you "okay but not great" video playback in VLC.

Next, post the brand and model of the external monitor you connect to via HDMI.

Now define what you mean by OKAY.

FYI -- if your resolution on your laptop screen is not at least at HD quality resolution size...19201080 (1080) or 1280720 (720)
then the quality of playback is limited to what your screen resolution is.

Using an HDMI cable and running it to an external monitor might let you get HD quality resolution if the external monitor support 1080 or 720, which would present you with a higher quality experience.

The monitor on your laptopo is HD quality it is greater than 1280 x 720.

This video you are viewing, is it a file or a DVD.

Your definition of OKAY = not HD quality ????

Is the video your watching in HD format? As in, is it a blu-ray, or if a file, is it recorded in HD.

If it is not blu-ray or recorded in HD, then you wouldnt get HD quality, you would get whats called "up-scaled" from a lower resolution to the resolution of your screen.

Up-scaling can cause degredation of the video.

Please post the brand and model of the monitor your viewing the video on through your HDMI cable.
