Windows 7: BSOD only when watching videos

Okay, it can affect the second monitor.

Playing fullscreen youtube videos on my 2nd monitor doesn't seem to have the issue at all. Could this be an issue with a faulty cable going into my main monitor or do you think that it would need to be replaced?

It's worth checking the cables first, exchange the cables from the second monitor to the main monitor.

So the problem seems to keep changing all the time. Earlier I was able to watch the videos fullscreen on my 2nd monitor fine but then randomly the display adapter crashed so i moved the video back over to my main monitor and after about 10 minutes it BSOD.

This is extremely frustrating as it's making it almost impossible to figure out what is causing the issue in the first place.

Did you exchange the cables? If you did and it didn't work then it's the monitors faulty.

So i've noticed that using Firefox doesn't seem to have the issue as often. For example today i watched 11 15minute videos without any issue at all. However the 12th episode had considerably lower fps than the previous 11 and funnily enough the display drvier crashing returned on this video. Could the fps of a video actually be contributing to the video? As i said before it was perfectly fine on all other episodes but once the fps was lower it seemed to return.

It's not the FPS at all, it can't be. But you haven't answered my question: Have you exchanged the cables? If you did and it didn't work then it's the monitors faulty.

I'm reluctant to swap out the cables because I have 0 issues with anything other than youtube. I can play games at max settings and it never once crashes the display adapter or flashes or anything. Only youtube causes this issue so i don't see how swapping the cable out would achieve anything

Hmm, try to re-install Windows and see if that helps.

The issue is becoming more and more ridiculous and I can't find any kind of source of it. It crashes the display adapter now whenever I am using a browser on either screen and it doesn't just seem to be videos anymore as it will sometimes crash just when clicking a link to a site in google search.

I think i will download windows 10 or something soon, and hopefully that will resolve the issue
