cant play any video on win8

Specs: Windows 8
i cant play any kind of video, dosent matter if i use chrome, mozilla or IE. i've tried watching videos on youtube and netflix and both give me errors. and i cant even play downloaded files with vlc.

this happned when i pressed something on my keyboard on accident while a youtube video was playing. i tried pressing all of the buttons but nothing seems to be working.

i've tried rebooting my computer and checking event viewer to see if something was weird.

Thanks for letting us know. If anything like this happens again try this:

Turn off and unplug from domestic power. Disconnect main battery too if it is a laptop. Before putting it back to normal hold the Power Off/On button in for at least 20 seconds. This discharges the motherboard components and can sometimes "unstick" computers.

It's not too well known, but the psychic abilities of our contributors sometimes allow for remote repair.
