Windows 7: Videos locking up way more than normal.

13 Jul 2011   #1

Well its not POS Vista lol : )
Videos locking up way more than normal.

In the last 6 months, Ive noticed that videos like Youtube videos will bring my system to a huge standstill, sometimes it will remain BARELY active, sometimes after 30 seconds it will crash hard.

Ive reformatted my hard drive in the last few weeks, reinstalled "WIN Xp"
updated drivers, fresh install, etc etc. not much installed.
the new installation is a couple weeks old and its already crashed 3 times.
Always from flash type, or what ever that youtube is. Adobe maybe.

Anyone else notice this? I dont overclock at all, only one stick of ram (so no timing missmatches). no overclock issues.

Any ideas what might be doing this lately?

I love reinstalling windows every 6 months tbh, but now fkn video games are coming with limited installations, so i have to remember to de-auth crap i Paid for.
so its getting anoying.

Well its not POS Vista lol : )

well I found this.
I had tried to look up crash info with youtube before and kept getting useless old replies.
but this one may or may not fix the issue.
I bet it might work.

Basically, just right clicking / settings / on a youtube video, going to settings and UNchecking "Use hardware excelleration. ill see how that does.
