computer screen goes black, freezes and buzzes when playing News or other videos from web

My laptop Studio 1558 screen freezes, then goes black with a buzzing sound when attempting to play videos from news webpages (eg The Age). Any suggestions how I can fix this? Videos from DVDS and CDs no problems. Is there something wrong with my operating system or drivers? Any help would be much appreciated.

Many sites require Adobe Flash for videos (and sound).  Make sure you have the flash and the latest version.  Flash has been known to be buggy at times.
