if my brother's 7600GS can play blu ray movies then your 9400 should be able to do youtube. have you tried updating flash player and java? that kind of stuff?

Yep its probably a driver issue or software related. Either that or the video card is dieing. If it is dieing RMA it or buy an nvidia gt 240 for $60.
