HP Pavilion dv2 series

AMD Athlon Neo X2 Dual Core Processor L335 1.6GHz

2Gb RAM

W7 Home Premium SP1

Avast! Free

Google Chrome

K-Lite Codec pack

Laptop fan stand

 

A few months ago, my laptop started having trouble.  When I start watching streaming video, after a couple of minutes the screen goes black(!) as if it no longer has a video signal (whether I used the built-in or an external monitor it happens), the indicator lights (HDD activity, etc.) blink for a while and then the computer turns off - I guess in hibernate mode.  After that, I can turn it back on, and it shows "Resuming Windows".  Then, I can watch as many videos as I want back-to-back, but if I take a break for a while and come back, the same thing happens again.  I haven't tried any other browsers.

 

I have determined this is not the power management settings since I'm doing this with the computer plugged in, although I wonder if this might have something to do with the battery or the video RAM.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Namaste, peace & love,

Glenn

 

Edit: I tried searching HP and other sites for info on this phenomenon but didn't get any hits that matched my problem.

If I have frustrated you, then I must be a student. If I've imparted information or a skill to you, then I must be a teacher. If I've helped you, then I must be a volunteer. If I've touched your life, then I must be happy!
If you had to choose between saving just your family, or saving 10,000 GOOD people (but not your family), what would you choose?

It's been 4 days with no response.  Is this in the wrong discussion area?  Should I move it to Windows 7 or Hardware?  Please advise.

Since it's been a week without any response, I've figured that this question is outside the expertise of people here.  Please close it as I've posted it on HP's forum in the hopes they'll have the answer.
