    Cursor freezes and I cannot type when watching youtube


    Hi folks:

    Recently I have bought a computer with a license for Windows 10. Properties of the PC can be seen at the image below.

    But here's the problem: my mouse and keyboard completely stop responding after I run a youtube/vk/vimeo video or any website with flash or streaming audio. When the tab with youtube or similar site gets closed, the keyboard resumes typing and cursor moves as usual.

    Maybe anyone here has a solution? Thanks!

    How does "tab with YouTube or similar site get closed" if your keyboard and mouse are frozen?

    In other words, how do you regain control? Do you really need to close the page or do you simply have to wait till the video stops playing?

    Hi Andrey!

    Thanks for your quick reply! I have to wait till the video stops playing, but sometimes even this does not help. I try Ctrl+Alt+Del, but the menu with running processes does not show up. Well, for the last 2 weeks I have been simply pushing "power" button on my base unit to restart.

    I hope this helps and great thanks again!
