Product Name: hp envy x360
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am unable to stream any video.  I have tried Edge, Firefox, Chrome, and I cannot stream no matter the browser I use.  I either get a black screen or or I get a picture which will not play.  I have been unable to watch Netflix, Hulu, YouTube for the past two weeks.
