    IE/Firefox cause Monitor to go black or Computer to freeze

    Internet Explorer or Firefox both cause my monitor to shut off or my computer to freeze. It doesn't to this while doing anything else (IE gaming, videos etc) It wont do this useing Google Chrome which is what Im useing to post this now. I reformated my HP HDX 9300 Dragon Laptop to factory and ran all the updates but its now doing it again, or it never stopped I'm not sure I just ran through all the updates and cleaned all the factory crap off. I ran anti-virus, registry cleaners, defrag, all that great stuff, maybe I missed something. Im out of answers! Help!
