    Can my gpu not handle 4k resolution on Youtube?

    I tried watching a YouTube video at 1440p and 2160p. Every time I try either of those qualities, flash player crashes.
    Can my gpu just not handle that high resolution?
    I've never had any problems with video until I've tried to stream 4k quality. I can do 1080p fine.
    All my specs are on my profile.

    Hi welcome to 8 forums.

    I don't think Intel HD 2000 handle resolutions above 1080p. Still, try to update the drivers and check.

Hi there. I'd advise people NOT to buy Nero 2014 for their video editing program -- While it has lots of nice features I'm amazed that it does NOT enable you to add Subtitles. It's amazing when Free programs like Handbrake do and a professional so called polished program omits this really basic...

"Error Handle" message on bootup
I've been running win 8 for a few weeks now, with no issues to speak of, except: I get this annoying little pop up window each time I boot. All it says is "Error Handle." Doesn't seem to be causing a problem, but I can't figure out how to get rid of it. Anyone else have this issue, and what...

How does Win8 handle WINSXS
My biggest complaint about Win7 is how the WINSXS folder is handled. Basically it simply gets bigger and bigger, and there is no way to reduce it's size. Is there any information about how Win8 handles this? Does it do any better? IS there a way to clean up WINSXS in Win8?
