Sometimes Google Chrome gets weird. For me this is often when I put my Windows machine in sleep or hibernate mode. Next thing I know, all currently open page in Google Chrome or any new pages I open simply contain nothing. Blank. Zip. Nada. They aren't even trying to hit the network. They do nothing.
Here is one solution I've tried that works:
- Shut down Chrome.
- Check your hidden systray icons to see if there's another running. There often is. Right click and shut it down, too.
- Next, go into this folder:
C:\Users\[your username]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Storage
- Delete everything in there. If you feel nervous about deleting the contents, move them to a different folder instead.
- Start Chrome up.
You should be good to go.
