So I am in the same boat as you. For a couple of weeks now, my laptop would crash (screen blacks out and after a few seconds it freezes) when I would play a YT video in Chrome. My first though was Flash was being a bitch. I never got a chance to test this against HTML5 yet. My 2nd thought was the card was overheating. Before I had a desk, where my laptop was elevated on the back side so the airflow would be better. Now I just have the laptop on my lap or my bed, where airflow is not optimal. And for the past few days I kept thinking it may be the heat, as my screen would black out when I would open a new tab or tab to another window in Chrome. I never had this big of an issue on the previous driver so I may try to roll back my video card drivers. Also my card is a Quadro 3800FX M.
