Default Full Screen

I just got a new laptop and I'm having a problem. I'll go on a site like YouTube and click "view full screen" to view the video I'm watching in full screen, when i click it all I get is a black screen. Any ideas?

Try right clicking on the video (not full screen), settings, disable hardware acceleration.

You shouldn't have to do this though, make sure you have the right display drivers
