CNN video =complete system freeze

Postby morty007 on Wed Dec 10, 2008 7:00 pm

Usually what happens is that the video starts to play fine until it gets to about 1/4 of the way through,and just stops and the image goes black. Today it stopped, and my whole system froze, an unexpected 1st for me unfortunately. Ctrl-alt-backspace did not work as the mouse was also frozen, and I couldn't remember the other reisub one. Anyone else having this problem with CNN? I'm using Felicia, fully updated.

I have 10,0,12,36 installed. It just did it again, while I was listening to internet radio. What's worse, is that alt +sysrq REISUB does not work! I had to mash the power button down. Is that a bug in intrepid? :(
