When I play a video game and watch netflix on the 2nd monitor, the system freezes completely for about 30 secs to a minute, freezing the image of whatever video is playing and the game becomes non responsive. However the sound continues at this time. After this time, the sound gets stuck and buzzes for about 15 seconds then everything unlocks.I can play a game or watch a video no prob, but not both at the same time without causing problems.

What I've tried so far. I've tried MS Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome, all with the same problem. Searched google for solutions, I couldn't find any that worked. Tried clearing cache, turning off hardware acceleration for the browsers, going into silverlight options and deleting online storage, reinstalling drivers, re-installing flash and silverlight, re-installing games, re-installing current directx and re-installing sound drivers. Any more suggestions would be appreciated.

Are you sure it's not CPU related? Try boosting the priority of the browser in the task manager.
