Hi Guys,

For the past two days now whenever i log into the forum i see pages of code/symbols & whenever i make a post or send a pm,my screen goes blank.Does anybody know what is causing this as it doesn't happen on any of the other forums,just TIG! Sad

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers,

Mark.

Don't suppose you could take a picture Mark?

Press "Print screen" on your keyboard to capture the problem (make sure you are on the page) it will take a copy of everything on your screen.

Go into MS paint and just paste from the menu or press ctrl+v , the image that comes out will be what you can see.

If you don't want people to see your taskbar then just resize the picture to show only the error /code problem you have.

Sure once they see it , Chris/Shawn/Jay can fix it Smile

Oh and just let them know which browser you are using (and try others to see if the problem is happening across the board or just one particular browser)

You could update it as well if its not set to auto update, see if that helps.

I must admit even though I am a chrome fan (and user) it has its problems.

It's very fast and quite reliable but some code for some sites really messes it up.

If it helps here is the version I am using - 6.0.472.53

You can check that by clicking on the spanner top right of the browser, then click on "about chrome" it should say if there is an update and the version. I just had to update mine in fact since checking for you - I was running 5.9 something or other.

Not sure about the code, never seen that before looks like somethings set to show you the raw forum code instead of what its supposed to show you - too complex for me Very Happy

About the white screen - does it eventually time out when this happens? and say - this page cannot be displayed or does it just stay white forever?

I have noticed that at times when you overload your tabs on chrome it can get stuck and not play ball, normally killing all chrome pages and restarting the browser fixes it, or I have also noticed that if you have a net drop (it resets or you lose connection) even when its back it can fail to load the pages you had open, I normally kill them all and restart or if it persists I reboot my router - fixes it Smile

Might help, might not!

Cheers Joe,

I think the screen just stays blank & doesn't time out after i make a post,i'll time it & see.

We do seem to have been a lot of connection problems lately with websites not loading or taking ages to load up,i know sky(our internet provider) have been upgrading their service recently so maybe that might have something to do with it! scratch

Thanks for all your help mate,i've learned how to take screen pics today! Cool

I just swapped my browser over to mozilla firefox & had no problems whatsoever so the fault must be with google chrome somewhere!

Bloody gremlins! lol!

No probs on the help Mark! Sorry I can't help on the code issue but as I said Chrome does have its bugs Sad

It's a little bit like a Ferrari, its fast and pretty but not always as good or reliable as a family wagon lol

Glad you got it somewhat sorted out. I'm using the same version of Chrom as Joe, but on the Mac side of life. I'm not exactly sure what the scrolling banner uses, but it could be javascript or something of that nature. If you want to you could download the latest version and see if that works. Maybe by chance you have it disabled too. You can check that in the Chrome settings in Under the hood, content settings, and then Javascript.

Just a few things to try if you still want to use Chrome while browsing the site.

Good call on Java Shawn, it looks like Mark has it enabled as I just turned it off to see if I saw any code appearing, I didn't but I noticed this symbol appears when it is set to off -



Definitely won't hurt to try an update though, hopefully that solves it Mark!

Well we all had to learn at some point! At least being involved in star wars has increased your pc knowledge lol

If anything you try does work though let us know Mark, I hate mysteries Twisted Evil
