  1. Do you have the latest version of Flash?

    You can see your current version here.

    Make sure you have the latest video card drivers.

    The reason i recommend this is that Flash(used on youtube) can make use of your video card to help accelerate the video now, but sometimes older drivers do not work.

    AMD?

    Nvidia?

    Intel?

    Failing that, you can try to turn hardware acceleration off to see if it help. You will use more cpu power, but may be able to see your videos.

    If you need a flash site to disable hw acceleration, go here again. just right click on the Adobe Flash Player animation on the side that says it is installed.

    i got windows 7 and integrated graphics x4500 as a video card. does this give you an idea of the problem?
  3. Intel has a auto update for its graphics chips. I have not used it, but it may be the most easy way for you to get the latest driver for yours. EDIT, just tried it, just installs a small java program, then searches for drivers. Seems harmless. Like Intel would have anything bad on there own site.
