    Whole screen turns black when I play videos on certain players


    When I try to play videos on youtube, openload, Movies&TV and probably a bunch of other players (haven't checked) whole screen turns black, not just the video no matter if its fullscreen or not. I cant even see the cursor. The only way to turn the screen back on is to blindly set the cursor to peek at desktop, but when I maximize the program playing the video (whether its Microsoft edge, internet explorer or Movies&TV it doesn't matter) it goes black again. After restarting the computer it goes back to normal for some time. I tried playing videos on BS player and it works without a problem. Im using hp laptop and windows 10. Checked my drivers with driver booster and everything is up to date according to it. Help?

    :)

    Video player Issue

    No.. it can not play any type of video.it can't play it's own recorded video. If we try to play the video it happens to black screen and then show the list of video only. Plzzz provide me a link to download the real player or its default player.
