    Same problem was happened for me. But that had happened in my Desktop. And then I could find out the solution by taking the computer to a repair store. In my computer I had found that it's happened for Three reason like 1. If cooling fan can't work well 2. If graphics driver are not installed 3. If hard Drive have few insect problem. or Hard Drive are not working well. So check these three things first.

    I think you would recognize your laptop's problem Thanks.

    I don't know but I think the problem may lie in the browser you're using, I suggest just switching to internet explorer or Mozilla Firefox

    Try another browser, if the problem persist you are likely experiencing a Flash issue. However, if I recall properly, Chrome handles Flash without any plugins. If another browser solves your problem try updating Chrome and resetting it back to it's original state. Backup your bookmarks!

    The answer is simple!

    Your ''Cache'' (Temp Internet Files), Virtual Memory, and/or "PageFiling" are near-full

    and cannot take anymore.  Simply delete your Cache (plus "Cookies" and "History"),

    then clear your Memory with a shutdown & reboot.  Afterwards, you will freak at how

    fast and non-lagging your YouTube will be.

    →  ≡  or wrench  → Tools  →  Clear browsing data

    →  the beginning of time ▼

    [x] Clear browsing history

    [x] Empty the cache

    [x] Delete cookies and other site and plug-in data

    →  Clear browsing data

    Don't forget to totally shutdown+reboot afterwards.

    Switch your browser to mozilla firefox if it doesn't help cancel some processes you don't want through windows task manager (better don't try to cancel explore.exe)
