BSOD when exiting Google Chrome browser.


Well-Known Member
This started happening a few days ago. Whenever I close out the browser in Google Chrome, I'd get the BSOD. BUT every other browser such as Microsoft Edge and FireFox does not have that problem. I tried uninstalling Chrome, rebooting, and reinstalling Chrome but that doesn't fix the issue. Perhaps my video card doesn't agree with Chrome? Here are my specs (I know it's an old computer but it still works great!):

ASUS P5Q Pro Turbo Motherboard
Corsair 750 Watt Power Supply
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 Processor 2.83GHz
Windows 10 Home x64
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 555 [w/ Latest Gaming Drivers]

Has anyone else experienced this?

Can you upload the dump file(s)?


You may also want to try disabling hardware acceleration if enabled and test
In the address bar of Chrome type: chrome://flags locate and disable the following

Hardware-accelerated video decode Mac, Windows, Chrome OS, Android
Hardware-accelerated video decode where available. #disable-accelerated-video-decode

Hardware-accelerated video encoder accessed using Mojo IPC Mac, Windows, Chrome OS, Android
Use new Mojo IPC to access hardware-accelerated video encoder, where available. #mojo-video-encode-accelerator
