My workhorse PC unfortunately just broke down. Until I can figure out what exactly is broken and if I can repair it, I replaced it with the Shuttle PC that I'm normally using as a jukebox, e. g. for webradio in the living room.
Here's the specs:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV44A [GeForce 6200] (rev a1)
I'm using NVidia's recommended proprietary driver for the card, and I have two monitors in twinview configuration attached to it.
Only problem so far (and one that I've been more or less become accustomed to over the years, alas): I can't play Adobe Flash videos. There's just a black rectangle showing in place of the video.
I'm running Flash Player version 184.108.40.206-i386 on this machine.
As usual with Adobe Flash problems, I'm clueless. Any suggestions?
