I have installed 11.10 on HP 625 (graphic card ATI/AMD Radeon HD4200), everything looks normal but if I see videos on websites (youtube,, or similar), the whole Ubuntu crashes.

I have installed Catalyst 11.11 from AMD sites (according to this but Ubuntu still crashes.

Any idea how to solve this really annoying problem?

I had the same problem with my HP 625 (yes I have the same computer). I know how to solve this problem (works for me).

  • Remove catalyst from your computer. This solves crashing your PC.
  • Install Adobe Flash player (and update the program if needed). It's free (i.e., costs nothing).
  • Now you are able to see videos without crashing.

Have fun with your working hp 625!
