    flash causes system crash

    Hi,

    I have a problem with Adobe Flash Player. When I watch YouTube or Blip.tv or other video streaming sites, my computer crashes randomly during the video. It stops responding, I can't use keyboard and mouse. The only way to recover is a hard reset.
    It happens in FF, Opera, Chromium and Chrome. I had this problem on Flash Player 10 and on 11-beta I have it too.

    I running Ubuntu 11.04 Natty 64-bit. Kernel: 2.6.38-11-generic. GNOME 2.32.1. with Unity.

    short config of my PC:
    cpu: AMD Athlon X2 64bit DualCore
    mobo: ASUS M2N68 (+newset BIOS there is)
    gpu: Nvidia Geforce 8800GT
    hdd: WDC 500Gb
    ram: (some generic) 4gb

    Help me please.

    Your Sincerly,
    Andrzej

    It's probably overheating. Monitor your temps. Also, check out the Flash-aid Firefox extension.

    Hmmm... I've put new paste on the GPU core lately and PC works good under heavy gaming (like Civilization 5 or L4D2). Moreover flash works good under Windows. So I think it's rather software issue.
    Any other suggestions?

    How did you install flash?

    If using Firefox I strongly recommend flash-aid add-on. This will search out the most appropriate version of flash for your system, download and install it, and automatically remove any conflicting packages you already have.
    DISTRO: Xubuntu 14.04-64bit --- Code-tags --- Boot-Repair --- Grub2 wiki & Grub2 Basics --- RootSudo

    I've installed it from the package on Adobe's site.

    I've tried flash-aid but it did't helped.

    Are you monitoring your CPU and GPU temps?
    The next thing I would suggest is memtest.

    I have the situation where just Flash itself crashes every 5 minutes to an hour. Can't keep it on for long. It's worse if I have more than one Flash item going, like chat and radio streaming via a Flash interface. When the Flash adverts changeover it goes then.

    Running 10.10x64 12GB RAM NVidia Accelerated graphics driver (the recommended one)

    Temperature is fine. I did run memtest like 2 weaks ago - RAM was fine. As You can see craig100 has the same problem.
