Do you have a graphics card built onto the motherboard which uses "shared" memory? If so, your options are twofold: Add RAM to the maximum your motherboard will support and/or add a separate video card that has it's own memory. Newer games and YouTube both use video memory and system resources like no other application.

Playing Games/Videos lag and graphics card failure


I would not get one opinion from here, I would Google multiple variations in the wording of your problem to see how others have fixed a similar problem.
Other than doing the usual: making sure that you have the latest drivers for your motherboard, video card, etc., freeing up RAM by closing unnecessary programs or getting more RAM and a better video card (unless you already have plenty of both). Reinstalling everything from fresh.

Everytime i click on a video it just comes up as a black screen


YouTube freeze can happen due to many reasons. Major reasons are overload on website, simultaneous running of many programs on your computer, Low RAM, Slow internet connection or corrupt windows registry.
For smooth watching of YouTube Videos take following actions: 1. Watch videos at off peak times, if possible
2. Do not run other programs while watching videos. They slow down computer in general by making use of memory.
3. Add RAM on your computer. More RAM will make easy execution of heavy programs on your system.
4. Get better and speedy internet connection. Talk to your ISP in this regard.
5. Regularly clean windows registry. Windows registry is vital place that stores information for important computing functions. A congested or corrupted windows registry makes computer slow that causes YouTube like freezes. For this, get the best registry cleaner reginout and optimizer. Use it once in a fortnight for fast computing to avoid YouTube freezes and system slow down.

Fallout 3 xbox 360 freeze


If your playing on a disk clean the disk with clean cotton or a clean cotton clothe and the disk reader with a vacuum with brush head. Installing it on a hard disk would also sometimes prevent the game from frequently freezing. Freezing randomly or at a certain scene is a glitch on the game. Hopefully it will be patched soon.
