Very frequently, when watching youtube videos on Chrome, when I full screen (this only occurs on full screen), frequently after a few seconds the video will entirely freeze. The audio will still play, but I'm unable to issue any commands, such as pause, esc to minimize, etc.


The only thing that works is alt tab.


I've had task manager up during this, and I don't see any strange spikes either.

Please help?

Hey There JimmyKarter, 


Please try using different browsers , "Does the issue happen in any other browsers?"

Also , since you are using Chrome try checking for Updates in Google Chrome. A bug you may be experiencing may have been fixed in a recent update.

If you require assistance to do so refer to their support page HERE

Try running Chrome in Incognito Mode.  If the problem doesn't occur try removing your extensions one at a time till you find the extension causing this.


Under System in the Advanced settings remove the check in Use hardware acceleration when available, if it has one.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
