Windows 7: Partially black screen when I switch between browser windows

Partially black screen when I switch between browser windows

I use two browsers simultaneously. When I switch from Firefox window to chrome window, the top half comes black. It doesn't go until I hover my cursor over the black area. I find it weird, it keeps happening every 2 minutes.

Welcome to Seven Forums Gv Sparx. Try disabling Hardware Acceleration in Chrome. I suspect the black screen issue is when switching TO Chrome, correct? Here is the method

Chrome GPU Hardware Acceleration - Turn On or Off

If that doesn't work, also look for

GPU accelerated compositing
GPU Accelerated Canvas 2D
Web page Prerendering

"GPU composting in all pages" cannot be changed

The first thing that you asked to change cannot be changed, I'll change the rest and then see what happens!

Hmmm, I don't use Chrome, but you should be able to enable/disable any setting. Regardless of the effect that may have! What exactly happens, the choice is grayed out?

Ya the choice is grayed out.

I changed the chrome theme to default theme. Let us see how it pans out from here.
