    Updated video drivers, now Chrome won't open
    « on: October 21, 2012, 04:48:39 PM »
    I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times. The browser appears in the Process list (Vista) but doesn't appear. I've tried disabling antivirus and firewall. I've run antivirus as well. I have no idea what happened when I upated the drivers. (Radeon 4650 if that matters. )

    Edited to add that I am running Windows Vista Home Premium, Service Pack 2.

          I don't know which driver you chose in the update. However here is a link to the drivers associated with the video card. Perhaps a different driver that can resolve the issue may be available from the site.

          You could try rolling back the driver to the previous version.

            I had to update the driver because I was having video problems.
