I wanted to watch the OSU-Minnesota game last week on ESPN3. I have a new acer laptop with Windows 7 on it, an Intel i3 processor, 4 gb of ram and a 320 gb hard drive. I turned on the game and I would successfully begin watching it on Mozilla Firefox but in less than a minute, it crashed. A message appeared on the screen which stated adobe flash has crashed. Also the actual picture stopped moving for a few seconds and then would resume. I tried this over and over through the evening but to no avail. I even downloaded Minefield and Google chrome but experienced the same problem each time I tried to view the game. I have Adobe 10.1 flash installed and a new Square version for 64 bit computers. I have Shockwave too. I believe I have the latest of everything. So will I ever be able to watch espn3 without the constant interruptions of audio and video again? I appreciate any help I can get.

Being that this is a laptop, I only think it appropriate that I try to determine if you are using the Wireless internet connection. If you are, you might try with a hardwired connection and see if it helps as wireless connections have been known to have issues with streaming video.

Hi if you are using 64 bit Win7, Flash hasnt got their act together with 64 bit Win7. Flash SQUARE is a BETA!!! Maybe try using running Internet Explorer or Mozilla in 32 bit and use Tools - Compatability view settings or use Troubleshooting - Programs in control panel. Win7 has both 64 and 32 bit Program files. Hope this helps cheers dellta

Nothing that I try is helping me to solve this problem on my new Acer laptop. I bought it in April and I have Firefox 3.6.12 installed on it. I downloaded a new adobe flash program and changed some setting like uncheck accelerate hardware as I read somewhere but nothing helps. Espn3 crashed no matter what browser I use a few minutes after a sports event starts. Also there is lots of lagging or stopping of the whole picture as I watch it. My computer is on Windows 7 with 4 gb of ram and a 320 gb of hard drive. I am on Verizon dsl with wireless but I am fully wired in on this computer. I hope someone has some ideas to help me solve this annoying problem.

You could try increasing the Paging file size to 8190 MB to give a bigger buffer. If you have an ATI video board, you should open the CCC / Advanced settings / Overdrive and increase the clock rate by 25 MHz to keep it from lowering too much during low video load conditions.

It is best to let Windows manage the virtual memory and paging file on its own. The reason Flash could be crashing is due to a corrupt installation, and not buffers.
