Computer Crashes When streaming video
I can watch home videos etc that are stored locally on my computer no problem, but if I try watching a full-screen video on hulu.com my computer crashes, saying the video driver failed. I have updated the driver for my video card, but have still encountered the problem, although not as quickly. The two places I have had the issue recently are hulu and watching a video full-screen on Facebook. The videos are fine until I watch them on full-screen. Does anybody have any ideas where to start looking to diagnose the problem?
Any help appreciated.
Thanks,
Lance

P.S. Put those computer specs in your account! So any time you ask a question about your PC you dont need to list your specs!
