Today for the first time I've noticed weird problem. When I try to watch video on youtube, my screen goes berserk. The whole screen starts jerking and it becomes impossible to watch or do anything... I press space to pause video, but image jitter continues. I switch to another window, screen is still doing that. There is no way to stop it, unless I close the browser and then put computer into sleep. Only when I wake it up the screen becomes stable again.
Anybody see that?
And more importantly, how to fix it?
I've experienced this weird behavior with several different movies today. You may check it e.g. here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwYvJ91OPjM
Windows 10, 10.0.17134.48. Intel video driver 220.127.116.1190. NVIDIA Quadro M2200 driver 18.104.22.16864.

What browser? Can you try a different one?

@richk, thanks a lot! You're right on spot.
* SlimJet 22.214.171.124 (based on Chromium 64.0.3282.119) (Official Build) (32-bit) -- causes this effect.
* Chromium Version 68.0.3399.0 (Official Build) (64-bit) -- causes this effect.
* IE 11.48.17134.0 -- works without it.
At least I know how to avoid it now.
But what's wrong with Chrome and its siblings? Why do they do it?
To see the effect open video in full screen and try to pause / restart it couple of times...
Is it a problem with video driver? Lenovo Vintage doen't offer me update for Intel video driver, but I know that there is a newer version for NVIDIA Quadro M2200 driver 126.96.36.19973 (https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-p-series-laptops/thinkpad-...). Should I install it manually?
I guess it won't help, because both Chrome browsers do not use NVIDIA... What do you think?

Hello! I'm having the exact same issue on a ThinkPad E570. Already had to replace one screen and it keeps happening.
Is there a way to fix this besides switching browsers? Does not make sense that a YouTube video could cause hardware damage.
