I am having trouble with my new comouter.

Sometimes when I am watching Youtube, my computer randomly freezes and I have to restart my computer.

This so far has only happened when watching youtube videos, not while gaming.

I have all the latest drivers, but I haven't updated the BIOS (It is currently version F3)

Can anyone please help me?

My build is listed below:
CPU: Core i5-2500
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3
RAM: G.Skill F3-10600CL9D-8GBNT 1333MHz
Graphics Card: Sapphire Radeon 6870
HDD: WD Caviar Blue 500GB
DVD Drive: LG GH22NS70 22x SATA DVD-RW Drive OEM
Power Supply: Antec Neo Eco 520C
Network Card: TP-LINK TL-WN951N 300M
OS: Win7 Home Premium 64-bit
Case: Cooler Master Elite 430
Monitor: Samsung S22A300B 23in Widescreen LED Monitor
Keyboard and Mouse: Microsoft 600 Keyboard and Mouse Pack
Case fans: BitFenix Spectre 120mm Blue LED Fan

Also, I am not sure if this is related, but after I restart the computer, sometimes it will turn itself off before loading windows, and either it will turn itself back on, or stay off and I have to push the power button to turn it on.

I had an old computer that froze on YouTube sometimes. I used to clear my cookies, browser history, and restart. That usually did that for me perhaps it will work for you.

Try to update your flash player.

I already have the latest Flash.

Also, I am using Firefox 9.0.1 as my browser, but this happened in Firefox 8 too.
