Windows 7: Laptop-freezing during video

Laptop-freezing during video

Hey, I'm new to the forum and require some help.

For a few months now whenever I watch any video (youtube, bbc iplayer etc.) after a short period or a longer period my laptop will freeze for a number of seconds up to 5 minutes and then my laptop will basically unfreeze. In all other aspects my laptop works perfectly, I even had a pc strategy game which ran fine whenever I played it.

I haven't downloaded any software that could have instigated this issue. So I don't know what to think. I've looked at other threads and my only thought is that there may be an issue with heat.

Any help would be great, cheers.
