I got the same problems for the last 3 months. It happens every time I watch a video on streaming (youtube, dailymotion...)

I've been trying lots and lots of different settings, like :
- other browsers (safari, firefox, opera, google chrome),
- de- and reactivating options in my Nvidia control panel,
- ccleaner

I have windows 7, nvidia ge 220

Yes!! I have this exact problem!! I just bought this Dell 14R laptop a while ago and whenever I go to YouTube and try to play a video the screen just suddenly goes black!
But this only happens when I go to YouTube, When I tried to watch a video on Yahoo nothing happened and the video just played normally. The problem is I am so used to using YouTube and I don't think I can live without ever using it again. Can someone please help us???

exactly same problem with my new Dell inspiron 17r i5, and I'm unable to find solution on the net.

I think I will return my laptop and take another, that is my first try with Dell, well, this will be the last.
