nVidia Display Driver stopped working frequently on loading more than two YouTube Pages (streaming videos). The streaming area (Flash Plugin Area) is dispayed as Green. But still it's possible to continue with audio

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load a video from Streaming website (Say youtube.com)
2. Load another video on a new tab
3. if the issue is not happening keep opening more pages
Actual Results:  
Display driver stops working. Windows restore the driver but the flash plugin area not displaying any video other than a green colored filled box

Expected Results:  
Both (or more) videos must be worked simultaneously

I'm running nVidia 8400GS (mobile). Driver version is 260.99
Flash Player version - 10,1,102,64

You should report this to Nvidia
Please post the graphic section from about:support and upgrade your flash plugin to 10.2 r152
Do you already tried to disable the hardware acceleration in Adobe Flash ?

I tried upgrading the driver after reporting this issue to know if it's a driver issue or not. I did not disable hardware acceleration.
