Chrome is not rendering (blurry) on Mac 10.10.5 Yosemite via USB2 UGA-2K-A display adapter


#1

Chrome 46.0 stopped rendering on Mac 10.10.5 Yosemite via Pluggable USB2 DVI display adapter (UGA-2K-A rev B). Nothing is rendered, just a blur of stripes. Firefox and other programs work fine. Chrome works fine on the monitor connected via display port. I have tried 2 different USB2 display adapters, and both have the same problem. !](https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/s3_images/1292759/ScreenShot2015-10-14at1.36.52PM_inline.png?1444844262)](https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/s3_images/1292759/ScreenShot2015-10-14at1.36.52PM.png?1444844262)

A quick update - After the problem showed up, I updated to the latest driver (DisplayLink_OSX_2.4.dmg), but the problem still remains.

Hi Oleg,

Turn off hardware acceleration (http://www.solveyourtech.com/turn-har…) and restart Chrome. Does this make a difference?

Kind regards,

Yes, it worked. I turned off hardware acceleration, and Chrome came back to life.

Thanks!

I had the same issue today (as did a colleague) - unchecking the hardware acceleration box worked but not sure of the consequences of this for other chrome functionality so feels a little sketchy.

Hello John,

Disabling hardware acceleration in the Chrome browser does not hurt anything and is necessary for avoiding problems as mentioned above. There are no other fixes.
