Hi there, Ill try to explain this in as much detail as possible......

When im viewing online streaming video, (the likes of youtube etc) or even if there is flash content on the screen, my computer will freeze, i can still move the mouse, but i cant click any of the windows/tabs i have open. Then the screen goes black as if in standby mode, the music keeps the same pitch of whatever was playing (really annoying). I at first thought it to be a graphics problem, so after nipping down to PC world, and buying another graphics card, installing that one, and trying again, i still had the same problems.

Not only does this happen with online video, i cant play games. I can watch DVDs / downloaded content, but just not live stuff.

Any help at all will be most appreciated.

Thanks a bunch :whistling:
