Ok here is my problem with my pc. Everytime i set youtube or netflix to full screen my pc freezes and either recovers with the "display driver failed and has recovered" or i have to restart the pc. ive tried installing older versions of flash and gpu drivers and removed the gpu and used intel hd graphics. Could this be a failing mobo?
updated windows, updated flash, updated display drivers, downgraded flash, downgraded display drivers, removed gpu and ran intel hd graphics, and disabled hardware acceleration. I can't figure this problem out.
well, the first thing you should do is disable automatic restart on a system failure on windows 7, so you can see the blue screen you are not seeing because the system restarts too fast.
go to control panel->system->advanced system settings->settings
In the Startup and Recovery window, locate and uncheck the check box next to Automatically restart.
then wait for the error to happen again and look at the blue screen and write down the file name that is causing it together with the error code.
update: a fullscreen 1080p video just froze about 20-40 seconds in with buzzy sound. the system recovered with no error at all after i had pressed ctrl+alt+del and there was about 7 seconds delay before it came back. sometimes i have to hard reset.
