    I seem to have an intermittent issue when playing videos on youtube or even with the occasional file I've downloaded. The video will distort to a point where it's unwatchable (see attached image) then I will sometimes get a message saying ' Display driver stopped working and has recovered".

    As far as I know, I have the latest drivers for my graphics card.

    Can anyone help me out? Thanks in advance.
