Windows 7: Monitor flashes on and off while watching flash videos online

Monitor flashes on and off while watching flash videos online

Okay so this only happens every so often and I'm not sure what the trigger is, except for the fact that it's definitely during a flash video.

No particular site does it, it's happened while watching video on both Firefox and Internet Explorer.

It definitely doesn't happen all the time, it's random. I watch tons of flash videos and it just comes out of nowhere.

So suddenly the monitor will go black and displays "No Signal" then "VGA" and then slowly flashes in the screen I was on, but the screen only bleeds in slowly and sometimes not fully, I can't really move my mouse or do anything. It's acts like the CPU is clocked at 100%...then the monitor shuts off again, until I move my mouse around or CTRL-ALT-DLT to bring up option to Task Manager and slowly bleeds back in again like before but then goes black again.

When I do bring up Task manager, I have been able to check and it says 0-1% of the CPU is being clocked, but it sure doesn't act like it. I can't do anything but force shut the computer off and reboot.

I have a Gateway, Intel Core i3, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit machine.

Just for debugging, have you tried disabling hardware acceleration in Flash Player to see if you get different results?

I have disabled it. The quality of the stream goes down and lags every so often, but through the weekend so far it hasn't crashed. it's weird because I've always had it enabled without issues until now.

0x124 BSOD while watching online flash videos.
In the last couple of weeks or so I've started getting BSODs while watching flash videos online. It doesn't seem to matter where they're from I don't believe. It's also not a guaranteed thing with any given video, it appears to be at random but if I had to guess it takes maybe a half hour total of...

Question about watching Videos online
I watch a lot of videos/movies online such as TV Shows on those streaming sites that our lovely Government has shut down. Question, is it true when the video loads it downloads to your PC? If so, can I stop that using Firefox?
