    Alot will depend on how good your Monitor is and if it's calibrated especially settings like Brightness, Contrast and Gamma , but on a Laptop , I'm not sure what options you have there? with a Colorimeter maybe , but there are online sites to test Monitor calabration which aren't bad if the only choice. Alot of monitors are set WAY too bright from the factory , which kills contrast and washes out the blacks.

    With HWACCEL on you maybe fighting the GFX Card settings with the Options in VLC on at the same time and actually making the Comp. work harder ? the file is being adjusted twice not once but CPU and GPU's are pretty powerful these days so you are unlikely to see issues I'd think especially in a Downloaded or similar movie.

    Playing with gamma and contrast may help with the blacks in VLC ..... but calibrate the monitor 1st...
    Thanks a lot dear for helping me so far, it all worked well and i am very deeply thankful to you.
    You talked about monitor color thingy and i recalled something which i noticed in control panel but i ignored it previously thinking to see it some later time.
    There is an option "color management" and in advanced tab there are color profiles. Such as RGB, CMYK like if you work in photoshop, you would the depth of color differences. I took its screenshot to ask of you, if i do some changes to it and will it make some difference. Because i didn't want to do something and something go wrong and i can't undo it.

    In addition, the monitor is glossy type laptop lcd with resolution of 1366*768 and vga is intel hd graphics 4400 chip 128mb dedicated and 2011mb page file shared memory and system specs are core i3 4010U (3M L3 cache) 4gb ram.

    I would not play with the color management options in your case , they appear to be correct and with a laptop you don't have as many options anyway. The Calibrate Button you see there doesn't really help much ...for me at least .

    For a laptop I would try an Online Site to set brightness, contrast and colour etc as best you can instead , and then make further adjustments in VLC , if you prefer the "brighter than life" look of saturated colors.

    I used to use this online test before i purchased a colorimeter.
