Hi guys. So basically while I'm streaming a video my computer will get this buzzing sound and freeze and the only way out is a manual reboot. Sometimes it skips the reverb and just reboots itself.

What's weird to me is that I can play Skyrim, WoW, or any other game all day with no problem, but within 15 minutes of streaming a video it crashes. Some posts I've seen suggested not letting the computer sleep, but that didn't help. Another post mentioned about a problem with Flash in Chrome, but it happens to me in IE as well. My video driver is up to date. Everything works perfectly, provided I don't stream a video. Any ideas?

Update: I got my hands on a different video card and tried it. Within just a few minutes of streaming a video on Hulu the computer had froze. Is there anything else it could be?

You think that could be it? I mean, this happens no matter what site I'm streaming from, even Hulu. They can't all be coded badly.
