GT220M, Laptop freezing when I play videos
Hey guys, I have this problem for a while now. This has been happening since around the beginning of January. I often can play videos fine, but at least once every day my laptop will freeze. Usually if I continue trying to play the video after everything unfreezes after around 3-7 minutes, it will just end up freezing again. Sometimes, but not always, I get the message saying that the display driver has stopped responding and has recovered. However, most of the time this doesn't appear. My laptop is only two and a half years old and I don't play lots of games on it, so I have no idea why it's dying so fast. Anyone know the likely cause? Oh, and I played a lot of the Diablo 3 open beta this weekend and it never ended up freezing. It seems to only happen with videos, whether is YouTube, Netflix, or VLC.

Hmm does no one go on this forum? Anyway, I noticed this only happens with videos. I can play video games as long as I want with no issues.
