This is a pretty weird error I've been getting for a few days now. Every other video or so when I watch them on YouTube while using Chrome causes my AMD display driver to become unresponsive and then recover. What usually happens is one video will briefly display a warning that I need to download the latest edition of Adobe Flash (which I already have) before loading and playing properly, then if I click on a related video my screen freezes, goes black, displays my system clock with the incorrect time (it's always correct when it returns), and then informs me my "display driver AMD driver" has recovered. The video proceeds to play normally after that.
I've put this in this forum because it's a strange error that I believe has to do with Chrome, not my computer or YouTube itself- I can watch YouTube videos embedded in other sites just fine and the error doesn't seem to be occurring while using Firefox, even with Chrome running in the background. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome (which worked but only briefly), restarting my computer (both by going to shut down -> restart and holding down the power button), and simply closing and opening Chrome. None of these solutions worked and MalwareBytes isn't picking up anything out of the ordinary. I'm running Windows 8, and none of my other friends using YouTube on Chrome are having any problems, leading me to believe something is wrong with my install of Chrome in particular- like I said, it doesn't happen when I use YouTube on Firefox or when I watch embedded YouTube videos. It only occurs when I directly go to YouTube and watch videos there while using Chrome. Please try to keep explanations simple, by the way- I'm a bit frazzled from doing every practical thing I could think of before coming here! Thank you in advance (and thanks for all the help in the time I've been coming to you guys!).
