I Have a dell studio laptop with Windows 7 install on it. Few weeks ago sudently I couldn’t watch any videos on any browsers installed on my laptop (Explorer, Firefox, Chrome). When I open a page that contains a video the page don’t respond anymore. I checked that I had the lastest version of adobe flashplayer and adobe shockwave player, to be certain I redownloaded them. The videos still couln’t work. So I started to search for some answers on the internet but I couldn’t find any. So I lunch a system restore and all went back to normal. Few weeks later the same problem appends so I did a system restore again. At this point I tought it was a problem with the windows update but when after the system restore I reinstall the updates the problem didn’t show off. Finally today I was watching a video on my laptop (not on the internet) and the player crashed. I went on youtube to see if I could watch videos and gest what I can’t. I can’t even see the ads that shows up in the yahoo homepage. I ready the make an other system restore but I want to get rid of this problem once and for all!!!! CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME
i guess it is not the issue of windows operating system, maybe some problem with your RAM or graphics card driver , it is the most common reason for this kind of problem. First ,try to install or updates the latest graphics card driver of your computer. if it cant fix the problem , you’d better upgrade your RAM as watching video is a resource consuming task. wish this helps
The same thing is happening to me right now, before videos were having super lag along with any online games I would try to play, I then tried to restart and update my adobe and other things and now I can’t play any video’s/games at all, I was told that adobe my be acting up but idk....
I uninstalled Adobe Flash Player and installed Real Player thinking this would help but it didn’t. I am not computer smart so have no idea what is causing my problem. I have Yahoo mail and when I try and play a video it will go a couple of seconds and then quit.
I have two HP laptops with the latest and greatest, and the same problem happened. They will not work with Firefox, Chrome or Internet Exployer. I did not do a system restore nor will I do one after your experience.
