When it downloaded did it install or simply download? What web browser are you using firefox, IE 6,7,8,9?, Chrome? It (flash update) should be in your "downloads" folder, try installing it.

From what you said I am not clear whether Flash was previously working on both IE and Firefox, or what happened to each one when you tried the website video.

Delete all Flash download files that you have obtained. Now try getting the Adobe flash download on each browser that you have running, one at a time.

For each browser make absolutely certain that you know where it saves the download file. When you have done one, delete that downloaded file then do the next browser - there are variations.

Although you have posted this in the Hardware forum I doubt very much that it is a hardware issue.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

A few months ago there was an issue after an adobe update many folks lost the ability to play video that was playing. In some cases it was because the browsers had their own flash and it was conflicting with the standalone flash download. It happened to me. I had to go into the browser pluggins and disable the standalone version of flash. I thought they had resolved the conflict, but maybe not.

maybe this will help
