It happens when watching YouTube only. In fact, I tested it out by watching a video on Dailymotion, and it happened there too. I get the blue screen and it does a memory dump, before rebooting. It never happened until recently. My power supply is brand new and is a 630 W Rosewill. I have had it for maybe a month, and this problem has only crept up in the last two or three days.
I was under the impression that Flash is automatically updated in Chrome, which is my browser of choice. But I tried Netscape to see what would happen and the crash occurred there as well.
The blue screen is not always what I get either. Sometimes the crash is merely a freeze that does not allow me to do anything at all. I will retain mouse cursor movement, usually up until a certain point at which the computer beeps and everything is locked, even the mouse cursor.
