    First off specs..

    Windows Home Premium 64 bit


    Computer is an Asus G72-gx1

    Intel Q9300 2.0Ghz quadcore 6GB of ram and the nvidia GTX 260m


    Now here is whats going on

    I can do anything with this computer I can run 5 games simultaneously and barely use 100% ....

    But ANYTIME i load a chatroom that has video cameras using the flash applet the entire system locks... the mouse everything.. alt f4 doesnt exit ctrl alt delete doesnt bring up the task manager the mouse is frozen nothing works execept a hard reboot.. I have the latest java and flash drivers installed

    I tried loading it on these browsers

    IE 64 bit
    IE 32 bit
    Firefox 32 bit
    Chrome 32 bit...

    Doesnt matter the entire system locks... Is this a problem with Windows Home Premium 64 bit that Im unaware of?

    Hi Darkpriest,
    is your machine running with all the latest drivers and Bios updates?

    Yes Asus update has no bios OR firmware updates.


    I already said i was running the latest flash and java

    and yes every driver I can think of that would be relevant (graphics, webcam, etc) is updated

    what drivers would you have suggested I check?

    here is the problem

    Creative Sound drivers and the Realtek drivers both exist on the machine shipped from the manufacturer..


    Apparently if you remove the creative drivers .. things dont do that anymore.


    There must be some sound conflict that im unaware of cause a system freeze.


    remove the SOUND BLASTER drivers if you have the G72Gx1... this solution is courtesy of Ken1 at the Asus help forums :)
