    Flash Player Crashing, along with a few games


    I bought a new Lenovo Y510p laptop a few months back, and just last week I decided to transition from my old computer to this laptop. The OS was Windows 8 for the laptop, later upgraded to 8.1, and everything was fine until about three days later when suddenly I realized that whenever I went on Youtube or any website with flash-based content(using Chrome btw) AND games such as WoW they crashed.

    I assumed it was a problem with the new 8.1 or something with updating the graphics drivers, so I decided to completely factory reset back to 8. Re-installed Chrome and my games, and it worked fine again for a day, then started to crash again. At that point I downgraded my windows 8 to windows 7. Re-installed everything again, but it still crashed. Can't play youtube, flash content, or any games(not even the pre-installed windows games like minesweeper, solitare, etc.).

    Could it be one of my graphics drivers causing the problem? If so, why does it affect my Youtube or flash? Please, I would appreciate any bit of help. Thank you. Here are my specs:

    Hi, update your graphics driver from Intel site https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Sea...ng&ProdId=3720 and download the latest version of Adobe Flash Player from Adobe: Creative, marketing, and document management solutions. Note: use Chrome to download Flash player.
    Good luck!

    I think I'm having the same issue as you are. Flash plugin crashing, games crashing when I try to start them up. I updated my graphics driver (I have nvidia, and you have intel) and flash player, but I haven't had any luck. I didn't do a clean install, but I did a system restore. It was only a temporary fix, and a few hours later the issue happened again.
