Was watching a youtube video (which, incidentally, I'd watched two seconds before with no problems) and my computer suddenly flashed to a black screen, then recovered. After it did so, the video was reduced to a little green banner, and I saw a pop-up with a triangulated exclamation point on my toolbar, the said something about the AMD graphics driver having to restart itself.

The warning log reads "display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered".

A one-time glitch or should I do a deeper search?

It may just be a one-time glitch. Double check you have updated drivers for your graphics card.

Additionally, making sure your Adobe Flash plugin (what powers Youtube videos) is up to date wouldn't hurt either: http://www.adobe.com/go/EN_US-H-GET-FLASH

Seems like a one-time glitch so far - my flash auto-updates because I'm on Chrome.

I THINK my graphics drivers are current; I'll double-check for them.
