I have a desktop computer with windows xp, quad processor and 500 gig disk space.
I always play youtube files without any problems.

When I entered youtube today and tried to play an flv video, the computer got stuck and after a few seconds it displayed a blue screen with an watchdog.sys error.

It now gets stuck the same way when I try to play .flv files from my hard disk.

What can I do?

Thanks in advance,

One thing you can try is to right click on a .flv video and choose settings (or properties) and disable the hardware acceleration on the Flash Player, this sometimes helps resolves this problem.

Hope this will help.

Welcome to GeekstoGo

I am posting only to point out that you started TWO threads on this problem, just minutes apart.
I am sure this was an error. Please DO NOT WORRY about it.

I have closed the other thread on this link, as you are of course already receiving advice from my colleague Alzeimer
