    recently I've been having problems with my laptop when I'm watching movies on hulu and sometimes when I'm playing games. basically the screen goes completely black. everything else is working because I can do quicksaves or I can shut down firefox with alt+f4 but nothing brings back my video until I restart.

    I'm not sure if its flash 9 causing this or something else but I've had my laptop for over a year now and it started happening about a month ago.

    specs are:
    dell e1505
    intel 945gm graphics
    windows xp pro x64

    any suggestions would be appreciated

    Try re-installing your display drivers

    I uninstalled and reinstalled the newest drivers and its still happening. My screen has been getting loose so I'm going to take it apart and make sure everything is still attached properly.
