    Computer freezing while watching video?


    Not sure what's going on or if I should be worried about this but when I got up today and checked my PC (I had left it on while watching videos on VLC Media Player) I couldn't move my mouse or anything so I realized that it froze. I restarted it and about 10 minutes later while watching videos on YouTube in full screen it froze again. It almost happened again after I restarted and tested it briefly, I full screened a video and my pc was lagging so I quickly pressed esc. I watched the video without full screen just fine.

    :)
     

  2. My computer freezes while watching a video.

    There is no way a PC uses 8GB of physical ram to watch a video on top of the already pagefile assigned.

    If this is the case, there is serious system corruption of files or a problem with Video card, dedicated Vid memory or video software or a bad system board.

    Maybe the person needs to install all board hardware drivers from OEM if the OEM has them for Windows 10.
