hello. just installed a installed a MSI AERO 1070 video card and now have a black screen in chrome & opera, but not edge browsers. if you ALT+ E, you get a menu just like normal, except the entire screen is black under it.

I uninstalled and reinstalled Opera, but same issue: black screen. some kind of hardware accelerator needing unchecking? I have the latest NVIDIA drivers and Windows build 1909.

any ideas would be welcome!

How do you know the browser issue is related to the graphics card? Did you try another one? Do 3d games work fine?

Also please add system specs: >>Posting Guide<<

for Chrome go there
C:\Users\[YOUR NAME]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\ShaderCache

replace [YOUR NAME] with your pc user name , and delete the GPUCache folder inside it, for Opera i'm guessing it should be something similar
for Chrome i believe you can also right click on the Chrome icon and go to properties where it says target , at the end add --disable-gpu. it will disable the hardware acceleration and making it look normal again. but if you want to use HW acceleration you will need to delete the ShaderCache first. Don't worry it's safe there's no user data in there or saved cookies or whatever.
