PC crashes when playing YouTube videos and playing some games, but not others

Q: PC crashes when playing YouTube videos and playing some games, but not others

Hello All

I have an HP Pavilion p7-1254 (at least started as that, had some stuff upgraded, explained below), AMD A6-3620 2.2Ghz Quad Core with AAHD2-HL board; save you the time of looking it up if needed. What happens is the system with will just freeze. Occasionally the audio that was playing with stutter infinitely like a skipping CD. Rarely I notice the system will stutter once or twice before totally freezing, happens in a couple seconds. But mostly, it just stops. When it freezes, the only option is to hard reboot.

I have had this problem for quite some time, probably about a year or two. At first I really didn't notice any consistency in the crashes, seems totally random. Some times it would freeze while browsing any random page, be it videos, forums, ad ridden or ad free. Any browser as well; Chrome, Firefox, IE. It also crashes when playing some games although not other games that have higher requirements; e.g. Guaranteed to crash, probably within 10 mins, if I play '8-bit Boy' on Steam (about as low res as implied) but I can go on 4 and 5 hour binges on Elder Scrolls Online or Skyrim with no crashes. I have recently noticed that YouTube videos (any video) is a guaranteed crash within a 20-30 seconds.

I have tried everything I have been able to find to do, to try and fix this issue; but none have worked. So far the hardware parts that have been replaced with new components are the RAM (now 2x4GB GEIL Enhanced Corsa PC3-12800), HDD (now 2TB WD Caviar Green), PSU (now EVGA 500w 80 Plus), and added a PCIe graphics card which was removed from the system when it did not fix the problem; so that it could be used on a system that was stable. The graphics card that was used was a ASUS 4gb R7 290 STRIX, that is currently working fine in different system. Just as a side note, the PSU was replaced to support the graphics card; not because it seemed to have failed. In fact, all of the parts removed from the system, work without issue in different systems. That's ok, I wanted to upgrade anyway.

I have also used monitoring software to watch the temps and volts during a crash, and have never saw any temps/volts spike, drop, or get above normal operation during any freeze. This has been tested countless times and each time hardware was replaced. I used the programs HWinfo and HW monitor and watched the CPU, MOBO, RAM, graphics card; no temps ever got too high or even spiked, no volts surged or dropped. When all the hardware replacement didn't work and temps seemed normal, I even tried replacing the thermal paste (used Artic Silver 5) and cleaned the heatsink. The only components in the PC that are original are the CPU and MOBO.

This problem has also persisted through an update to Windows 10 and a clean install of Windows 10. I have updated drivers for VGA, LAN, WLAN, and updated BIOS. Installed K-Lite Codec Pack (unselecting all the junk it tries to install with it), because I read somewhere it could be a codec issue.

There are probably other programs I have used and steps that I have taken to try and resolve this, I just can't recall because of all different things that have been do over such a long period of time. I was just hoping that someone would have some other ideas that I can try. Any help would be greatly appreciated and I can provide any other information you might need. Thanks for the time!!

hi, i sometimes experience crashes when i watch Youtube videos. the screen turns black for awhile, then a message pops up (shown below).



that is one of the two problems i have. the second problem is when i'm playing a game (Heroes of Newerth) and my computer just freezes.

this all started after i used the program Driver Genius Professional to update my drivers. me being the dumbass that i am, did not create a backup before updating. after the update it fixed some of the sound issues i had with games, but also started causing crashes when i watched Youtube videos. this was about a month ago and as time passed it got worse and worse. it started causing my computer to freeze whenever i played games. after i restart my computer from a crash sometimes it starts up to a black screen and just sits there until i restart agan.

i've attached a .txt file with the information from dxdiag. i'm quite a "noob" when it comes to computers so if i have missed anything please let me know.


thanks.

So yeah, I have this problem where every time I start to play a YouTube video, my screen will flicker a little then go black, permanently. I then have to force a power off to get Windows working again.

I can't figure out if it is Windows, FireFox, the Nvidia driver or the Flash plugin that's causing the problem.

A few times when the screen flickers it does come back on, with a balloon message saying the Nvidia driver has crashed and restarted, which would obviously point to the drivers. But only today I updated to the newest version (266.58) but still the problem occurs.

I removed the video driver, FireFox and Flash. Reinstalled all drivers cleanly, but I'm still having all the same problems. I can't for the life of me work it out.

And this only happens on YouTube. Any other video streaming sites play absolutely fine, but YouTube? Nope.

Can anyone out there give a little help to this problem?

Oh, it's Windows 7 64-bit, on a Dell XPS M1730 with Nvidia GeForce 8700m GT

Thank you in advance!

This BSOD happens mostly when I'm trying to run games. I don't do anything particularly graphically intensive on my computer, mostly WoW and things like Starbound and League of Legends. It also crashes occasionally while watching YouTube videos though this is much less frequent. The research I've done seems to imply it's some kind of issue with my drivers, but I have no idea how I would begin to solve that. I've tried re-installing my video drivers from scratch and it hasn't solved the issue. If you can do anything to help me out, I'd be very grateful. Thanks.

Hi ncolon.

The latest BSOD dump in the zip is of 07/03. It is a stop 0x3B.

Code:

Though it is not saying anything else precisely, but display driver failure is one of the probable causes of a stop 0x3B.

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although we have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions). Please uninstall the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): DuplexSecure - FAQ

As an alternative, many people recommend the use of Total Mounter or Magic ISO

Right now I cannot see any security software installed on your system, did you have any? removed it for some reason? Uninstallers (removal tools) for common antivirus software.

Hello all. I have been having the same problems with my desktop (a Frankenstein's monster of different parts first put together with assistance at the closest Frys store) that have spanned at least a few years. I've needed it for college and it mostly works for what I need it to do so I left it like this but would now like to once and for all solve the problem.

I'm running Windows 7 with a MSI mainboard, AMD FX-4100 CPU, 4 Gigs of RAM, currently connected to a ATI Radeon Graphics card connected to a cheap, old HP Pavilion mx50 monitor.

Okay, so the symptoms. Originally, when my computer was left to idle the monitor would shut down as monitors usually will but along with the monitor the whole system would be in a coma that I couldn't even use the off button to stop. I had to push the switch on the back to turn it off. Now it can idle for at least thirty minutes, but I think if left for an hour or two it does the same thing. Unfortunately I forgot how I managed to improve this problem.

The second problem still happens and is my major concern. When running certain functions the computer will either do the same as above or it will crash and immediately turn off the whole system. I can watch DVDs without problems for several hours and mp4s for at least twenty minutes but if I watch for longer, play Minecraft, or even watch Youtube for a significant portion of time it will crash.

Have you tried in a different browser?

Trying in a different browser will help us determine whether it is a problem/setting in IE, or if it is a broader issue with your computer/OS.

The other thing I would try is to reset IE.

In IE go to Tools -> Internet Options.

A:Bsod playing youtube videos

Hi Duncanj,

Welcome to the 8forums.

I recommend to remove Tweakbit software, it is quite poorly written and its functionality could cause problems due to the poor coding.

Please uninstall everything of AMD graphics using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from your manufacturer. Use custom/advanced installation to ONLY install the drivers.

Hi All, thanks in advance for your help

I have a brand new pc, Haven't had any issues with it even playing new higher end games like Thief.

But I have got a BSOD twice now, and they both occurred under the same circumstances.

When watching a video on youtube (this dosnt happen 99.9% of the time) I might pause the video. then press play not long after. the computer freezes up, sound gets suck playing the last sound it was playing
and instantly the BSOD screen comes up saying its going to restart in a moment. the first code i got was 0xa0000001 . I wasn't able to write down the second code in time.

My first though was that it was something to do with flash player, but now my inclining makes me feel its something to do with my graphics driver. But im really not sure so here i am asking for kindly help

I'm having an issue with YouTube videos on Firefox 22 not playing properly they will wait for about a minute and all the YouTube controls will come up, Videos are playing just fine on IE10 though, is there any way to where I can fix the issue on Firefox I am using the latest version of Adobe Flash Player on Firefox

A:Videos on YouTube Not Playing Properly

Do you use Adblock on FF? Try disabling that to test and see if that fixes it. Try running FF in it's Safe Mode and see if it works there:

If so, try disabling extensions one at a time to discover the culprit.

Hello! for the past few weeks the youtube videos aren't playing smoothly. I tried playing the same video in dailymotion (both at 720pHD) and it plays quite smoothly. The videos at youtube start off well, but after few seconds it lags and then it plays well.. this goes on and on (around 10 times in a video of 3 mins). I tried to lower the quality to 480p, but the problem still exists.
Also, tried disabling the extensions but it still the same! Help please.. Thanks in advance!

I have strange problem with playing online videos.

When i play video on youtube in minimum screen or middlesized one videos are normal, but when i play it in fullscreen video is oversaturated (too much contrast and light). The same happens at ANY video online (not just youtube).

It also happens when i play any video with windows media player at any size, but when i play movies with other players (like mpc,VLC player etc) its fine. I think some settings for online playing and media player are screwed up

Look at this picture to see about what im talking:

A:Help with contrast when playing videos on youtube or wmp?

No I don't think so, there are no such settings, also contrast has nothing to do with your issue, looking at your sample, it seems like in full screen, the number of colors supported is lower so you are getting the next best thing. Check to see that you have the latest video drivers installed, also if you are using either the NVidia or the ATI center, you may see if there is something you can tweak there. But the monitor itself could be the issue, so see if you can borrow a monitor from a friend and reproduce the problem.

I downloaded the latest adobe flash and that didnt help, the video appears to load but just never starts playing. So I installed the latest drivers for my device which was the Intel HD 5500 and the videos started playing and working fine but once I shut down my laptop and turn it back on they dont work again and then I have to go through the process of installing the drivers again. How can I fix this so I dont have to install new drivers on every reboot?

I am recently facing problems in streaming Youtube videos
when I try to watch a video on Youtube,it takes a lot of time to start playing and it buffers for two to three minutes or so
.I have a 2mbps cable connection directly connected to the pc from modem via Ethernet Cable.
I did not experience this problem before i reformatted my pc two days ago.
I have searched many forums to find a solution to this problem but I couldn't find a solution.
I have tried removing Adobe Flash Player and reinstalling the newest version but still it does not work.
I have tried Int Explorer,Firefox,Opera,Safari,Chrome....but all show the same problem.

Kindly Sirs please help me...any help will be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Videos take a lot of time to start playing on Youtube

It does sound like a isp problem unless your connection is being shared.
Is it just YT that is giving you grief or other sites ?
Try turning off the modem for a minute or 2 and see if that works.

You might want to consider contacting your isp to see if there are any local problems.

And btw, welcome to TSG, help yourself to the wealth of knowledge available here.

I recently had issues with Firefox. Youtube would not play any video. Or basically any video on any website. So after updating flash and still having the same problem. I went directly to the main source of my woes.

Firefox help. They have a great tip section in help and what they had me do, to was to uninstall flash 13 to an earlier version of flash. And they provided a link to it as well.

That did the trick. Adobe is obviously updating versions without testing them thoroughly.

So for anyone having issues with playing Youtube videos, try this first. I also tried doing a System Restore, but that also saves the newest version of Flash, so it was pointless. You dont always need to update flash. It may give you more grief then its worth

I've seen a lot of ways to make YouTube videos auto play, but no one else seems to want to prevent them from playing unless I click on them but me. I have limited bandwidth, so I'd rather not play videos unless I specifically choose to. I used to have an option to "stop download" when I right clicked, but for some reason on these that automatically start up, that option isn't there anymore.

What's the trick to keeping videos on blogs and other such websites from playing automatically?

Thanks!

This is a really annoying problem.
It nearly happens to all youtube videos i play.
The title is self explanatory, the videos keep on playing even though i stopped the video. I have tried re-installing firefox and flash, but with no good results.

Any ideas?

A:Youtube videos keep on playing even when i stop the video

Are you sure those videos run in Flash? Right click on a video and see if it displays Flash settings or HTML5 settings.

As far as my personal experience goes, whenever I install a new browser, or just clear my cache and cookies, then sign in to YouTube again, it seems to enable the HTML5 player by deafult, even though I don't opt in for the experiment. You can go to YouTube HTML5 page. and at the bottom of the page click "Join HTML5 trial" then "Leave the HTML5 trial"; that should fix some videos (with no ads) automatically playing in an HTML5 player.

As far as the Flash player goes, I'm not sure whether this is a Flash issue or something else on YouTube's part because for the last couple of days, I have a different issue where the progress bar doesn't show me how much of the video it has loaded (the gray meter that fills below the red progress indicator) though the video plays fine.

Hello anyone who gets this message!

I was recently trying to watch a video and it would stay on 1% buffer. I left it at this and watched a youtube video in the mean time perfectly, then suddenly the other video started fully buffered. I tested many times and basically all videos except youtube videos must load completely after hitting the 'play' button before actually starting where as youtube downloads and plays simultaneously

Thanks guys!

Hi I've been getting BSOD's for a few days now. It started off only happening when I was playing youtube videos on firefox, with messages related to various memory problems and directx or AMD driver problems. Then it seemed to start happening more and more often while I was gaming as well. I can be playing Fallout 4, GTA V etc fine for 10 or 20 minutes. Good FPS (for my setup) no freezing or artifacts, then A BSOD. Same with youtube videos. It plays fine for 10 or 20 minutes, no problems, then BSOD or at the least CTD.

Never had this problem with this computer before in the 5 plus years I've had it. The only things I've added hardware wise in the last month or so is that I changed 2 x1gb sticks of ram for 2 x2gb sticks of ram. I was starting to have the problem with Youtube videos before I swapped these sticks tho. I've run memtest86+ for almost 3 hrs and passed the full test with no errors. I also ran windows memory diagnostic with no errors. I've also let prime95 run for half an hour then the Intel burn test run it's 10 passes at standard stress rate...no problem

I also have a new logitech g100s mouse and I installed the software for it. I got this mouse almost a month ago though and the problems just started in the last 3 or 4 days. I tried uninstalling the driver and software for it tho and am just using the microsoft driver now. It actually BSOD'd in the middle of the software uninstall today tho? After I did that, then did a clean reinstall of my AMD card drive... Read more

All the YouTube videos embedded in Facebook do not play when in HTTPS. When I click play, the video just disappears and it leaves blank white space. While when not using a secure connection, everything works pleasantly well.

Is there any way to fix it, play videos, even when in HTTPS?

What if you try to play it on Youtube or is the problem just on Facebook? If it's just on Facebook, my guess is you need to change some sort of setting within Facebook. I'm not on Facebook so I don't know what that would be.

The last message I got included a mouse pointer visible on the screen and referenced "hardware" in the message. I believe that the previous two BSODs were 0x7e and I think the last one was 0x124 although I'm not sure. Have debugged and found one of them to have been caused by hal.dll and this was with the videos on full screen. Have tried testing the RAM and CPU. http://speccy.piriform.com/results/3...KRKqOxqu3HmvNK

Hi Kiko4564 welcome to SF .

The bugchecks are not very recent so they don't portray the very current condition of the system.
Attachment 302184

What I feel the need to debunk is the myth that ntoskrnl or hal.dll are the source of
the crashes which they are definitely not. They are often being blamed for the problems
caused by a different culprit because they are such centric components of Windows
(to put the simplest way possible).

Now the latest bugcheck is a 0x124 which is a hardware fault so I would like you to run some tests.

Code:

Hi, I'm running Windows XP SP3.

DVDs and other downloaded videos seem to be playing fine, it's just watching online. I have uninstalled and reinstalled shockwave player and flash player numerous times but this doesn't help.

Hi yyanho.

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Dont run any disc cleanup tools before you upload another zip.
