    I had that problem and spent several hours trying to fix. Finally solved by turning off hardware acceleration in Chrome Settings. Of course, Settings doesn't open either so you have to boot in Safe Mode, go to Chrome Settings there and uncheck the box under Advanced Settings that says use hardware acceleration and then Restart.

    At least that worked for me. I hope it does for you also.

    The most difficult job in the current W10 is finding how to get to Safe Mode!

    If you want to get to safe mode, hold the shift key down, click restart.

    There are some menus to pass through.

    Thanks, Ken. Yes, I Googled it and got there eventually. It used to be much simpler in years gone by.
