This seems to have fixed it for me.
Copy/paste this into a new tab
click "Clear Host Cache"
At first it may throw another err_name_not resolved but after that it should be ok.

echo 160 | sudo tee /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness > /dev/null
That's pretty dim. For slightly brighter pick a higher number
echo 260 | sudo tee /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness > /dev/null
echo 160 | tee /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness > /dev/null
echo 260 | tee /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness > /dev/null
This also seems to work on Debian and CentOS.

I Google'd it several times and the fixes would work, but not for very long before they problem started again. I tried drivers and all kinds of stuff. Made sure my Chrome didn't have a Google Music extension (common cause of this bug).
I solved this problem by closing iTunes. After that my media keys work perfectly again. While iTunes was open it was trying to retake control of the media keys like some kind of nazi every few seconds. Which is why the fixes worked, but not for long.
So if your media keys don't work in spotify close whatever over music player shit you have open, yo.

Recently I started getting a lot of screen tearing in Netflix, especially when full screen. This only started happening recently and Google wasn't much help.
The fix for me was to go to
System properties > performance settings > adjust for best performance
Something about Windows Aero being enabled let's Windows process video better.

Open itunes, let it hang like normal.
Open a chat program called Digsby, must trigger some kind of library. Now a blank white itunes window opens and I can't get to my desktop.
Open taskmanager and kill itunes related process (ituneshelper, ipod stuff, distnote, etc).
After that itunes opened almost right away and seems to be "ok"
