My Laptop/Computer Freezes While Watching Videos!

"I've had my Asus laptop for around a year, and I've never had this problem before. When I watch a video on youtube after 5 minutes or so, the screen will free and the laptop will make a buzzing noise before it got crashed. Sometimes the rate changes like I was able to watch 25 minutes' show when it crashed. I'm not able to click anything. It has happened while watching a video on full screen and on normal size. It only happens when watching a video. I don't know what is wrong and I want to fix it as soon as possible."
