Windows 7: Youtube causes laptop to crash

Youtube causes laptop to crash

Whenever I stream a video from youtube, my screen turns black and I am left with a buzzing noise coming from the speakers. I have tried cleaning my registry, reinstalling flash, changing the paging file, changing the browser, changing the power settings of the laptop, updating the drivers, and still, I couldn't fix the problem. Whenever I stream a video from another site, the laptop works fine. I'm pretty sure it's not a hardware problem because my laptop can handle Crysis:Warhead on Enthusiast without problem and the laptop is still new. My PC is an MSI GE700 Laptop. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

What kind of video card are you currently using? nVidia, ATI, or Intel GMA?

I had this it does it with any flash game. 'Dark Scorpion' it says under 'My System Specs' his details

Am guessing you have a 10.9 driver? downgrade to 10.8 or 10.7 if that.

My laptop allows me to switch between an Intel GMA and an ATI Radeon HD5730. I use the ATI most of the time.

Does it do it under both of the cards? And like he said, try to downgrade direct x versions, this can be hard to do but can be done. Best way to handle is with system restore.
