Windows 7: Crashes when playing YouTube videos

I wish it WAS just Flash for me. Die to the fact the Windows Media Player crashes as well, as soon as a video is opened, makes me think it ISN'T purely Flash. Even with the new current Beta drivers, 295.51, there is NO sign of this being fixed. Needless to say, I'm getting really annoyed.

"295.51-notebook-win7-winvista-64bit-international-beta" driver seems to fix this issue for me. No youtube chrashes so far. (XPS M1730 - 2 x 8700m SLI mode)

But if you say so, this means I was just lucky until now

You may have just been lucky, yeah. Not every one with these cards has these problems, so you may have been one of the fortunate ones.

However, I have recently changed some registry entries, for TDRs and the like, and aside from 2 driver restarts after starting a YouTube video with HA on, and the odd screen flicker, I haven't had a single crash. Even WMP has worked without crashing.. touch wood...

These are the entries I changed/added, and I created these reg files from my own edited registry. Feel free to try them, byt remember to create a system restore point first. I'm using Windows 7 x64, but they should work with x86 and Vista. I can't guarantee they'll have the exact same effect for everyone, though.

M1730 black screen playing video

I'm also having this problem after upgrading to windows 7 64 on my M1730 8700 GT.

The problem does not always come up, sometimes I can watch 10 videos before the black screen presents itself, sometimes it happens after watching some photos. (this morning it happend when I watched photos of Poetin being re-elected).

After this I went to this formum and watched the proposed solutions. I went to page 3 and found out that one guy fixed the problem with an older version of flash player. I just removed my flash version (version 11.xxx) and reinstalled a version 10.1.xxx (difficult to find an older version) I did exactly what I did this morning before the black screen came up. I watched some videos, watched the photos of Poetin again and....so far everything went well. I will let you guys know whenever the problem is there again or otherwise what the situation is after a week

Udate: After 3 days and playing numerous video's I still did not crash. Looks like the old flash player solution did it in my situation

It's Fixed!!

Hey guys, I'm happy to report I decided to try out the Nvidia R300 drivers when I reinstalled Windows 7, and have a very stable system now. No problems with youtube, windows media player, iplayer etc for over 2 weeks now.

Good news to the long term 8700m GT sufferers!!

Thanx for updating the forum. I just downloaded the new r300 drivers and exited to see if what your saying is also true for me. I very much hope so because besides this problem my m1730 is still running like a song (quote Johnny Cash)
