Screen goes white or Displays Grey bars

Hi again,

Popping in for a quick tune up, my screen on occasion just goes white or displays grey bars, this usually happens while watching media content that streams online like a game or a youtube video.

Any Ideas?

Usually - does it happen when doing anything else?

Are those using Flash? Try toggle hardware acceleration for flash (right click youtube video screen and Settings). Or re-install it.

Yeah usually, I can leave my pc for hours then come try youtube and it happens, it also looks like the my graphics card overheats or something. When I play a video game for more than 2 hours it starts lagging.

Download and run Furmark for 5-10 minutes, check the temps, it is an intense benchmark.

Tried hardware acceleration toggling yet?
