What's the resolution on the MP4's you're watching? Try playing a DVD or Blueray on your system and see if you have the same issues.

This will depend on a whole lot of variables..
1) Source of movie
2) Size of movie
3) Player your using

This might sound stupid, is your monitor set to the highest resolution it can handle? (I'm assuming it's 1080p, too lazy to google your screen monitor)

If the answer is yes, download a player called KMPlayer (that's what I'm using, no problem so far, except for the retarded Ads that pop up everytime you want to lunch something) (Keep the default settings and try if it works)

What's the video card driver that you are using?

Is it the same in every movie or just this one?

Is the TV connected to the same computer or are you using something else to play the movie to the TV? If you are using a different device to play the video, can you run a connection from the computer to any other TV/Monitor other than the one with the issue? Do you have a second cable to try for your monitor (unlikely a cable, but you never know).

If the video from the computer displays well on one screen and not on another (and they are the same resolution), then it very likely is an issue with the monitor in my opinion.
