Google-chrome – Chrome: Black Screen of Death


I dont know when it started to happen. The screen will turn into full black when a page include javascript (I think so). I cannot open Youtube videos, but I can still see the source code and the pointer to find links and buttons and I can hear the sound of video. I have tried to clear my cache and reinstalled to the latest version, but nothing seems work. Moreover, I have disabled the Pepperflash Player as well, but it did not help.

This my chrome version
Google Chrome 22.0.1229.79 (Official Build 158531)

OS Windows

WebKit 537.4 (@129177)

JavaScript V8


Please help.

Chrome comes with PepperFlash, which seems to be a problem for a lot of people. Try going to about:plugins, click on "Details" in the top right corner, and scroll to where you see "Adobe Flash Player" listed. If there are two files, disable the PepperFlash variant, restart the browser, and see if that solves the issue.

If it does, you may want to consider posting a bug report for PepperFlash here.

I have personally had issues with PepperFlash making the video jumpy.
