Ok, so I just received my new Lenovo Ideapad Z560 in the mail about a week ago. I have been enjoying it up until I realized it seemed to have an issue with some graphics. Every time I watch this youtube video that works normally for everyone else, instead of seeing normal video images like everyone else, I see things like these images:
It does it on other youtube videos as well.
Anyways, it does this not only for this youtube video but also did it three times (it turned green, blocky, and pixelated) while watching Teen Mom 2 on MTV.com. So I'm thinking it's a graphics card issue...or is there anything anyone can suggest to fix it? I already went to device manager and tried updating the drivers. It said they were all updated.
Btw, I have Windows 7 Premium, 64 bit. Intel Core i5 2.53 GHz, 4 GB RAM, and Intel HD Graphics. Thank you!
Solved! Go to Solution.

Can't view the images, says your photo album is password protected.
If it's only with flash, try disabling hardware acceleration on flash: http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/help01.html

i did some researching and couldn't find the solution to my problem.
i recently purchased the y560 with i5 480m and radeon 5730. most of the time when i go to youtube it works. but occasionally, my computer will freeze completely; no respond at all, the lights on the cap lock and num lock wont even turn on when pressed. i have to do the force shut down and turn my computer back on again. the video driver isnt the problem. any ideas/solution to the problem? thanks in advance
it only crashes on youtube, not problem with flash running on other websites.
im using minefield (64 bit version of firefox 4), and the 64 bit version of flash.
never had this problem with my old laptop, using the same browser and flash version.
