Disable any and all add-ons/plugins you may have installed in Chrome, restart the browser, clear the browser cache and cookies and then see what happens. It could be an add-on that is causing the issue.
I have already done it and nothing happens. I have tried every single thing.
Thanks a lot.
Since so far there doesn’t seem to be a flood of people with this issue, it may end up being very hard to track down what is causing it. Hopefully staff will figure out what it is. In the meantime, the only solution seems to be using a different browser.
I hope staff will figure it out, as you say because I really like Chrome. Thank you again.
zambullida, since you’re also having the issue with Flickr, there’s really nothing we can do.
You might want to contact the Chrome folks about this.
Yep, it’s been happening to me for about 5 days on Chrome. I’ll click stats or dashboard and the page will appear for a few seconds then go to black. Nothing seems to be working.
mechanisticmoth and momfog, are you having the same problem on Flickr or other sites?
I sent Google Chrome a forum post here: http://groups.google.com/a/googleproductforums.com/forum/#!category-topic/chrome/report-a-problem-and-get-troubleshooting-help/windows/53XecM5-aHQ
Hopefully something will come from it.
In my case, it is only on Flickr and WordPress, the rest of things work as they used to. Mechanisticmoth, when you get an answer from Google forum, let me know, please.
I hope you all excuse my poor English. I am Spaniard.
Thank you again.
Yes, I’d be very interested to see what they have to say too. Also, which version of Chrome are you folks using?
I am using the last version of Chrome. Anyway, I have just turned off my old laptop (Windows XP) and Chrome works perfectly. So, it must be something regarding Windows 7.
I just checked under Windows 7 and Chrome 18, and did not see the problem.
Are you running any extensions? If so, would you please try disabling all of them?
I have already done it. I have disabled all of them.
Perhaps there could be a third-party security application or firewall conflicting?
If you have any, you might want to disable those.
Otherwise, I’d say it’s up to the Chrome folks.
Waiting for a reply from the Chrome people. We’ll see how this goes. Otherwise, I might just have to blog through firefox….
I have the problem on Pinterest, too.
When the dashboard goes black, I can click in the left sidebar (where the menu normally is) and whatever I click, opens. So when it goes black I click the sidebar, and then navigate where I need to go from there. The only part of wordpress that goes black is the dashboard.
Pinterest does the same thing. Clicking on an individual pin brings the black screen but clicking in the middle where the pin is located opens the pin site.
It’s very weird.
macmanx, I have disabled the firewall and I still see the black screen.
monfog, I also have the same problem on Flickr (the black screen). I cannot even register! Yet, Facebook, Yahoo, Gmail and many other places work very well, as usual. As you said, it is weird. We will see what happens. I am longing to hear from Google.
I’m having the same problem any solution yet!?!?!?
Okay, I found a forum that helped on Google. It’s a temporary fix because apparently the Chrome people are working on a solution. This worked for me on an intel with Radeon Graphics on Windows 7.
Here’s what to do:
Right Click on your desktop
Choose “Configure Switchable Graphics” or something similar
This pulls up the catalyst control center (at least for me)
Then switch Google Chrome to Economy Mode or Power Saving Mode. Not High Performance Mode.
Hope that helps!
