Computer freezes while watching youtube on chrome and firefox.

I'm sorry if I posted this in the wrong area...

first my specs.

-Motherboard is a GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 R5 (rev. 1.0) AM3+/AM3 AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

-Processor is an AMD FX-8370 8-Core 4.0 GHz (4.3 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W with a after market cooler master hyper 212x

-10 Gigs of DDR3 Ram

-Video Card is a EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 DirectX 12 06G-P4-6368-KR 6GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 FTW+

-PSU is a EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G1 120-G1-0750-XR 80+ GOLD 750W

-OS is Windows 7 pro SP1

!Nothing is overclocked!

The problem I'm having I think is with watching youtube videos. I'd say about 70% of the time when I'm watching a video on youtube my computer freezes up. The video will continue to play but the sound will get distorted and my keyboard and mouse goes dead. It locks up and I'm forced to restart. Now this first started happening on Chrome so I thought maybe it was Chrome but then I started using Firefox and the same thing happend. I'm not sure what to do. All my drivers are up to date as well. This build is only 4 months old. Any help would be awesome. Please and Thank you.

  1. Try giving it a nice, clean install of windows and see if you still have the same issue.

    I had had the same problem 3/4 months ago and I was about to buy a new laptop.
    The after having tried EVERYTHING I found out the reason of that bloody Freeze: ATK package

    You need to install the newest driver ATKpackage for Windows10 (you must unistall the previous version before) and you will fix your problem.

    Believe me.

    Please at least let me know if that helped.
