Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad A20 2628 Notebook ?

Can't play youtube videos

\015 I've tried to download the flash player about 12 times--I get two icons on the desktop but nothing more. When I click on the icons, a bunch of gibberish appears in notepad. It isn't just youtube---any videos that have the ''Q'' willl not play on my machine, never have. The ''Q'' has a question mark inside it. As I say, I've tried to download the flash player but with no luck. The videos marked wmv play fine. I am using the latest version of the wmv player. The computer is an IBM Thinkpad A20\015
