intel graphics media accelerator 4500mhd crashing HELP!

by interceptor8700 / May 9, 2013 12:51 AM PDT

So a couple weeks ago my computer started to freeze whenever I would be watching a video, everything would stop and my speakers would make a crazy sound. This lasts between 30 sec to 2 min after words the computer continues from where it froze from and displays the message (Display driver stopped responding but has recovered) this is starting to get really annoying. Ive looked all over the internet and found many people wit same problems when they play video games but the only fixes people ever give is to update driver. I have updated driver and reinstalled windows 7 issue has not been corrected. Have alos taken the laptop apart and cleaned inside and out. I was hoping someone could suggest other sources of action or at least tell me if it is a possible hardware issue that im stuck with. My specs are

Asus K60IJ-RBBBR05 computer - Intel Pentium T4400 2.2GHz, 4GB DDR2, 500GB HDD, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit... Mobile Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M

Thanks any help will be much appreciated

The flash hardware acceleration is a known problem. Sometimes it's the end for folk and Chrome.

And for a check, always test this in a new user account.

Since you can't get it to work then why waste time on Chrome for now. We have other choices and they are usually fine.

In parting some have luck with updating or going back to another version of the video or audio drivers. But if you struggled with Chrome, I don't want to suggest this.
