Whenever I try to view a youtube video on normal mode, the screen flickers and it will give me several colors then my computer will stop responding and it will reboot itself. (See image attachment below). And I used to play the game called MANHUNT without any problems before. Now when I try to play it, it will simply freeze and I won't be able to move my mouse. So what I'm doing is pressing the alt + tab key and end the process in the task manager window to get rid of it. I wanted to play MANHUNT again. BTW, I downloaded another MANHUNT game and it does the same. Also when I try to run some Video Card tester, it also flickers then it will reboot my PC without a warning. This is the only problem that I'm having. Other that that, I can surf the Internet totally fine without interruptions. I can also view videos on my PC using flv player and WMP.

Update or reinstall your video drivers.
Thank you for the reply. I reinstalled the drivers a couple of times. Same thing. However, updating the driver is still a mystery to me. I tried looking in Google for a driver update and when I updated it using that driver it made my screen look bigger but same thing. If you can help me find a good driver to download and post a walkthrough on how to do it that would be perfect. Thank you! :pray:

Create a folder on the Desktop and name it Nvidia.

Then, download the Nvidia drivers for your card and OS to that folder from here -> Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

Then, in Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, uninstall your existing Nvidia drivers (include settings as well when/if asked).

Reboot your computer. The screen will look weird because you are now in the default driver mode.

Open that Nvidia folder and click the setup.exe - follow the prompts.

When you reboot next, the new drivers will be functioning. You will have to decide what screen resolution you like best (depending on what monitor yo use, etc).

Thank you for the reply... Will try to download the drivers on the link that you provided. However on my add/remove programs, I can't see any anything taht has something to do with NVIDIA and the only thing I have in there that might have something to do with it is a VIA Device Manager. (I'm not really sure what that is) But I will do i anyway. Thank you so much. I'll let you know if it fixes the issue. Thank you... :wave:
