Every once in a while (2-3 times a week) my computer screen flashes all types of color and goes black, then the blue screen and then I get the message
that the computer experienced an unexpected shut-down. The blue screen is full of text explaining the problem but don't stay on long enough to read
all the text. ( maybe 5 seconds)
About 3 times a week I get a black screen and the message that the display driver has quit working and I have to close the browser in task manager
and re-open it again.
Not sure if the two are related and not sure how to fix it. I did a system restore or recovery (set everything back to factory, as it was the day I
opened the new comp.)
Everything seemed ok and then it did it again about 3 hours after the recovery.
Checked the display driver and it is up to date
ATI Radeon HD 4200
Browser: Firefox 33.1
Any ideas what the deal is and how to stop it from happening?
90% time it happened I was on the site "break.com" and a few times on other sites which had videos like YouTube or Live leak.
Seems it has something to do with running videos or sites that have a lot of background flash playing on screen???
Any help would be appreciated, have checked websites trying to find an answer but seem to be getting nowhere.
