    Cannot get full screen in You Tube with Flash Player

    I am using Vista 32bit on Toshiba Satellite laptop. Itís a new laptop, just a week old. As my title says, when I go to youtube and click to play any video, it runs fine but when I click to make it fullscreen, it just come up with blank screen with a diagonal line right across. I have tried this on both Internet Explorer as well as Firefox.

    Any idea whats wrong with my browsers or any other softwar?

    Probably there would be some problem with your Flash player itself because I am too running Vista 32bit and there is no problem playing Youtube videos in full screen on Firefox as well as IE.

    What is your Flash Player version ? I am running the latest one that is v 9,0,115,0. See if you have the same version installed. if not, update it.

    As I said the laptop is just a week old, also I installed firefox and Flashplayer just 2 days ago, so obviously it is the latest version, right ? I donít think adobe had updated the flash version yesterday and the older version will stop working right on the next day.

    Any other solution please ?

    I experienced very similar issues on Youtube earlier, but managed to fix it quickly with the following steps. So I think you should too try out the same, may work. Here it is:
    1. Right-click in the standard youtube video window (non-full screen).
    2. Choose 'Settings...' from the Flash Player's pop-up menu.
    3. Uncheck the 'Enable Hardware Acceleration'
    4. Click 'Close'.

    Thanks a lot for the help buddy. i followed the same and also downloaded the very latest version of Flash player (although it is the same installed in my system) and overwrited. That really helped me.
