As I Understand you get a black screen and videos won't play on youtube,
Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, however, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details:
Which browser are you using to play on youtube?
Have you tried other browsers?
Did you update the video card, BIOS, Chipset drivers and the Java/adobe flash players?
While you respond to that, here's what you should know:
Go to http://www.adobe.com/software/flash and RIGHT CLICK on the logo that is trying to load. THEN: navigate down to 'settings', click on it, and you should have the choice: "disable hardware acceleration". NOTE: If you do NOT have this choice, quickly study the icons at the bottom: on MY display, the left-most was an icon that resembled a video monitor: click on that and you WILL be given the opportunity to "disable hardware acceleration".
If you are using the internet explorer, try the below steps:
Go into Internet Explorer and open Internet Options
Head to the Advanced tab
And check Use Software:
Keep me posted,
If I have helped you resolve the issue, feel free to give me a virtual high-five by clicking the 'Thumbs Up' icon below,
Followed by clicking on "Accept as solution" from the drop-down menu on the upper right corner,
Thank you for posting in the HP Support Forum. Have a great day!
