1.5.658.44 changes video to black

  • Hi
    I wanted to report a few problems I have since upgrading to the latest version yesterday.
    The first one was the zoom change, as reported in another thread but that was easy to fix.
    The second is that youtube videos are black, only sound plays. I've disabled hardware acceleration and then youtube works ok but before this update there were no problems, so i think that something was changed in the latest build relating to hardware acceleration that breaks youtube's player.

    I'm on Win 10 x64 with all updates and I have no extensions installed. The video card is Nvidia GTX960 with a Dell U2515H (high dpi) monitor. Vivaldi is the x32 version. I have no issues with HTML5 video players on other sites such as Vimeo. I've seen this problem mentioned on older threads so I think it's a Chromium issue that appears for some people, for a long time.

  • Resetting the computer can resolve many issues that cause a black screen.
    When the Dell logo appears on the screen, press F8 several times to open the Advanced Boot Options menu. Note: If the Advanced Boot Options menu doesn't open, wait for the Windows login prompt. Then restart the computer and try again. Use the Arrow keys to select Repair Your Computer and then press Enter. For more details check Dell U2515H Monitor Manual.

  • Turn the computer off.
    Press and hold the Fn key and power on your laptop while holding down the Fn key. This will start the Dell Pre-Boot System Assessment.
    Your computer will now run a series of tests.
    When your computer displays a series of horizontal and vertical color bars, it will prompt you with a pop-up message "Do you see the color bars? Yes / No
    Press the N key to enter the Laptop LCD BIST. Note: If you do not respond for 30 seconds, the diagnostics will automatically assume your response as a 'No' and proceed to the Laptop LCD Built-In Self Test.
    The screen will display multiple flashing colors. Look for lines, distortion, or any other video issues you have observed.
    The laptop will restart when the test is finished.
    Check Dell U2515h Manual for more help.
