Default Flash video freezes with 16GB of RAM on a Quadro FX 3800M (amd64)

I have experimented a variety of configurations of my OS, driver, and software, but with the same results: with 16GB of memory in my system, flash video (via Hulu, YouTube, and others) freezes, showing a still image of the last displayed frame while continuing to play the audio.

When I take the system down to 12GB, the freezes no longer occur. 8GB and 4GB are cool too.

Memory tests are good; I actually rotated all of the memory in each of the slots for good measure.

One other odd thing: Black and white movies, such as Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai via Hulu, didn't seem to freeze at all (I wasn't able to watch the entire movie, but over an hour in it still hadn't frozen).

Any insight would be much appreciated!
