post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Every time I try watching a youtube video or other streaming site, my screen goes black and when it comes back up the video is solid green. What should I do?

Try 260.99 or reinstall the driver.

I would recommend the following procedure -(follow steps in this order)
1) Uninstall your Video Drivers via Device Manager.
2) Use Driver Sweeper to get rid of ALL ATI and Nvidia drivers that remain. (I'll explain below)
3) Run CCleaner to get rid of all temp files (I'll explain later)
4) Run CCleaner to get rid of all obsolete registry entries (I'll explain later)
5) Reboot into Safe Mode
6) Install new drivers
7) Restart and test the system

Explanations -
2) I have personally seen ATI drivers on a system that has never seen anything other than an Nvidia card. I would assume that this can happen both ways. Better safe than sorry, so just kill 'em all!
3) I'm not 100% sure that driver's don't use and/or reference temporary files of some kind, so that's why I recommend doing this step. If someone knows for a fact drivers don't reference temp files, please link a source for me to check out.
4) This eliminates all traces of the old drivers and helps ensure the new driver is installed in a more sterile environment much the same way hospitals sterilize an operating room. Can you do surgery outside in the rain? Sure, but it could cause problems down the road. Just like not clearing out the obsolete registry entries...

The above process will ensure that you will install a driver cleanly, and not over any previous driver related issues. This process has solved virtually any driver related issue I've ever had.

If you're nervous about having CCleaner make changes to the Registry, you can always chose to "Back Up Changes to the Registry". It will save them as a .reg file that you can just double click on to add the removed portions back into your registry. While I've never had to do this, it's good practice to save the backup copy.
