There are many reports on Chrome showing black pages - most are related to a specific GPU, or page.
In my case I can easily recreate it. I have a Dell Windows laptop, which I use closed in a docking station, hooked to two monitors (What Mac users call "clamshell mode").
Sometimes I use it without the docking station as a plain old laptop.
Each time I switch between those two modes, after a few tab switches, the viewport turns black. Restarting chrome fixes the issue.
It is probably a combination of this scenario, my Chrome version, and my GPU.
The result of running
chrome://gpu can be found in this Gist.
What have I tried?
The only thing I found online, apart from waiting for a fix is to go to
chrome:flags, and disable "
GPU compositing on all pages". It didn't help.
Is there a solution / workaround for this?
