Hi all.

This is on my daughter's laptop, an HP 530 G3 with i5 and HD520 graphics. When watching video clips such as on Youtube, playback is fine until she 'fullscreens'. The screen then goes black after a couple of seconds and playback stops (judging by the audio). It then repeatedly flickers between short bursts of playback - a second or so - and black screen.

Drivers are updated.

Any idea on possible cause?

Thanks.

I'll try that Quant.

(Do I need to choose 'safe mode' on boot-up, or can I access it through windows once loaded? Sorry for the ignorance.) Update - it's F8 on boot-up, I believe.

Ok, I got in to safe mode, but nothing works there - no sound, no internet - so I can't really test if Youtube videos play fullscreen.

Help. :)
