Solved PC reboots with youtube, but runs games clean

Specs: Windows XP, Intel Pentium 4 @ 3.06 ghz
Hello,

I recently got a video card, 238 mb (I think). So I can play COD 2, Battlefield 2, etc... on high graphics etc... But when I try to watch a video on youtube the machine reboots, ONLY with youtube videos!

I know my graphics card is not updated, but could the problem be in the outdated driver? or is the GPU damaged?
Thanks for your cooperation.

✔ Best Answer
Watching youtube videos or any other videos use a little portion of a video card. If the GPU is bad u will start to notice when gaming. I suspect the problem with flash player, try the latest version. U have 256 mb video card but u didn't list the name.

I'd have looked at event logs or dump logs for more clues.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
