Windows 7 freezing when playing audio/video

Can not find the post I started earlier today, so guess i'll start again

Start to watch videos on web sites and after a bit, 30-60 seconds, the computer freezes and just a buzz from the speakers. Nothing works except the reset button.
when the computer restarts it shows the windows was shut down improperly
how do you want to restart, normal, safe mode, safe mode with networking


i downloaded Shark007's Windows 7 codecs as WMP codecs
and use VLC media player as another player

no help over in the video section

Possible Solution

I had the same problem. Oddly, I did not have the problem when I connected my netbook to an external monitor. So, when I want to watch a movie directly on my netbook, I lower the resolution, to 800x600. So far so good.

This could be various things.

Some of the most common things that can cause this are.

1. Outdated Video Drivers
2. Virus
3. Overheating CPU or GPU
4. Corrupted File(s)
5. Outdated Flash Player


There is a lot more issues, which is why we ask for the information we do, so we can narrow down the list.

Thanks for the reply
1. Outdated Video Drivers Up to date
2. Virus none found
3. Overheating CPU or GPU temps are monitored and none are overheating
4. Corrupted File(s) Did a complete wipe and reload of windows only to find same problem
5. Outdated Flash Player updated with out any change

Any other ideas???
Thanks
I do find it funny that I am suppose to upload the required files and yet no one has viewed them

Have you updated your Sound Drivers as well?

As far as the file upload, I am at work and do not have the ability of opening some of them until I get home. I stay at work all week, and get to head home on the weekends, unfortunately this week I am stuck here until the end of the month.

No sound in Firefox watching videos
Running Firefox 3.05 on Windows 7 x64 7000 and I get sound from some places and not from others. YouTube is fine, 183 Top Gear - One Tank Fuel Trip (Part 1)- Video is nothing. I have installed ffdshow and still no luck. I also noticed no sound from WMV files. Thoughts?
