Pink screen lock up
Perhaps someone can help me with this issue I am having on my recently built PC.

ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3
i5-2400 3.1Ghz
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560-ti
Seagate 1tb
8GB Corsair DDR3 1600MHZ RAM
Seasonic 620W 80+bronze PSU
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

The problem I seem to be having is that at times while watching YouTube videos (so far this only happens while watching YouTube, gaming has yet to give me any issues) the screen will turn pink with artifacts and lock up my PC forcing me to reboot. I suspect it is something with the video card, unsure what I can do to fix this. All drivers are up to date and everything else seems to be working just fine.

Thanks in advance for any help.

try using a different browser like Firefox or chrome. I'm not sure what causes it but it should fix it.

Have you tried updating or reinstalling your flash player?

Tried it, still happening. It only seems to happen when I enter fullscreen mode.

RE: Pink screen lock up
Are avi mp4 etc fine on full screen and have you tried changing the overall screen resolution. It might not be standard or set to an optimal resolution.

Don't just reinstall flash but also your browser and try another.
Another thing is to install an older version of flash.
