Hello,
Whenever I open the official minecraft webpage or Knowyourmeme.com or any other site with Embeded Youtube videos, my PC freezes, the screen artifacts with blue and red dots everywhere, the sound stops and I have to manually reboot the PC, pressing the On/off button.

Any ideas?

That seems to be a video card problem, likely the on board one. Can you please post your hardware config, thank you!
