When using Brave Browser to view youtube videos, computer restarts without any BSoD (Windows 11) or any errors. My computer simply powers off and back on again. The only message relative to this restart in event viewer is: “The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.” Nothing in the application log.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Open Brave Browser
- Go to youtube.com
- Select any video and watch it for three to five minutes and wait for it to restart
It should play youtube videos and not reboot my desktop
Brave Version( check
Version 1.33.106 Chromium: 96.0.4664.110 (Official Build) (64-bit)
The restarts happen at random times but the Brave browser has not made it past five minutes without hard rebooting my machine. Chrome, Edge and Firefox do not exhibit this issue on my desktop. I have run memtest86 without any errors, Windows 11 is a clean install from scratch (new PC build about a month ago). I use this desktop for heavy software development work for eight to ten hours a day, I never have an issue unless I use Brave.
