PC Lockups on flash videos

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , — Hugsie @ 10:39 am

Okay ever since I got my new video card, an nvidia 240 (1gb ram), my system will lock up after playing videos. I’m not sure if it’s a flash thing or an HTML 5 thing.  I use Chrome as my browser, and windows 7-64bit. 4GB ram, Core 2 quad cpu. I’m not running much else. I can usually last about a week before this happens again, which forces me to reboot.

I think maybe my video card is just glitchy. It doesn’t crap out like this when I’m doing anything else, like playing video games, only when playing flash videos (youtube, or similar) I’ve re installed and updated adobe Flash, installed new drivers. even beta drivers.. no difference. I might try running FireFox again and see if that makes a difference, then it could be an issue with Chrome.  Also it might be time for a hard drive wipe, and reinstall of windows.  Start off fresh again.  See how it goes.
