My desktop is borking every time I try to use Spotify. It’s happened on the Netflix website too. The screen goes all fuzzy blank and I have to manually reboot with button.

Any thoughts?

Yeah done all the usual stuff.

I might have sussed it tonight. I think it’s only effecting the screen weirdly enough. I switched the screen on and off and it seemed to fix it. Weird.

You use Spotify on a PC? Didn't it start its life as a mobile app? That's like expecting eBay to make a mobile app that matches its website.

I’m trying to use Spotify on desktop to play through good speakers on my office. I have no need to use it on my phone.

Really? Wow - that's the only place I use it! I need to drown out the irritating conversations of people around me at work.

A mixture of Tchaikovsky's violin concerto and Regurgitator's first couple of EPs did the job nicely this afternoon.

Netflix on a computer and not a tablet, smart TV or mobile? You lot are strange.

There are reports of similar problems with Netflix. Seems to be down to the Silverlight plug-in,
in some cases an update or re-install solved the problem.
Some mention too little Ram in their laptops/ PCs.

Made the evolutionary jump to the Cloud. Including all databases which I was told constantly would never work.

No more whirring server rooms and big desk tops. Also got the new HP/Bang & OIufsen EliteDisplay S340c 34'' Ultra-Wide Quad which is mega. Makes the old screens look like something out of the 1970s.
