    Basically, any time I stream a video my computer freezes, generally with a buzzing noise. The only time it happens is when I stream videos. I can play Skyrim or WoW all day without a hitch, but 5 minutes into a show on Hulu and its frozen. I've tried replacing the graphics card but that didn't help. According to windows, my sound driver is up to date. I don't know what else could be causing this issue.

    Well I usually use Chrome. But I believe it's happened with IE as well. I recall there was a known issue with two instances of flash running in Chrome and I tried disabling one but that didn't help.
