Windows 8 Technical Difficulties

For some reason, video playback on website like YouTube will cut randomly to a green screen and end the video. I have no idea why, but I included a screenshot if you think you know what could be causing it.

Another issue I have is with Windows Themes. For some reason when I leave a windows and it is supposed to do this:

It does this:

It annoying and I hope someone can help me fix this.

Also, I had to remove ClassicShell because it would lock my taskbar to one color and not change back, does anybody know what could cause this?


I found this. 

"If you are using Internet Explorer, I would suggest you to follow these steps and check if it works:

a. Open Internet Explorer.

b. Click the Tools button or press Alt key + X, and then click Internet Options.

c. Click the Advanced tab, and then browse to the Accelerated graphics section.

d. Click to select the Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering check box.

e. Click Apply, and then click OK.

f. Close all open Internet Explorer window and then test the issue."

Does it help?

I use chrome.

Perhaps you are running video at a frame rate/video quality that your internet speed can not keep up with.

Can't be.

Is your windows up to date? Skimped thru a few diff forums most poting to windows 8 updates and codecs. Maybe you're missing some. Or this have seen a lot of this suggested as well.

Doesn't give that option... and nobody seems to have found for my other errors :(

Looks like you need to disable hardware acceleration in chrome... But you are saying that you do not have that option. 

Re-install flash, upgrade or downgrade your gpu drivers. 

I would also go ahead a grab startisback, if I were you. 


Yea or make sure your Chrome is up to date cause i think Chrome uses its own built in flashplayer. I personally don't have flashplayer installed and am using windows 8 and all my vids playback fine on Chrome.

Possibly. I had to uninstall ClassicShell because it wasnt playing nice with my themes. I'm using the latest version of chrome and I downloaded the current version of flash. Seems to have stopped the issue. 

As to regards to the other issues that I have been having, do you have any known possibilities on how to fix them?
