Netflix stops at 98%
I've tried to use Google to search this particular issue, but to no avail. On my Cr-48 chromebook, Netflix loads up just fine, but, due to the netbook's hardware, there's more video lag than I'd like to deal with. The problem is on my Lenovo Ideapad Y570, Netflix plain and simply refuses to load; it always hangs at 98% never to stream the video. This happens on both Firefox and Chrome, as neither will load it.
How can it work on a netbook, but not a notebook. That's where the confusion lies; how in blazes can I get this to load properly. Perhaps something got royally screwed up in the Chrome settings, and if that is the case, is there a Chrome-equivalent of safe mode, like in Firefox?
I don't want to pay Netflix $8/month for a service I can't use, much less enjoy.
