What are you watching the videos in (Media Player or what)? What resolution are you running your monitor at?

Has that ever worked properly?

Have you installed or re-installed your video software, or have you loaded different video drivers than you were using before, since that last worked properly ?

Have you re-loaded Windows since that last worked properly ?

Is your bios Setup set correctly for your type of video adapter ?
Intialize video first, or Primary Video, or similar, should be set to the type of video adapter you are using -if that's set wrong you still have video in Windows but the specific drivers loaded for it Windows will not work properly in some situations.

You could try turning off hardware acceleration, in the global settings if this happens during flash movies like youtube. Some lcd's do not work well in full screen mode.
