Hover mouse cursor over help and click about Google Chrome.

It will automatically start checking for updates and If updates are available It will automatically download and install updates.

Hopefully It will fix the issue. Let’s move to the next solution If the problem still persists.

2)-Restart Your PC

The second option is restarting your computer. Though It does not work in all situations But It helps.
Restarting your PC will help Chrome fix the problem by itself.

But as per my experience, This option is not a permanent solution. This issue could come back when You turn on your PC after shutdown. Give it a try hoping It will work.

3)-Disable Hardware Acceleration

Third option which could help you get rid of this annoying problem is disabling hardware acceleration in Chrome.

To Disable Hardware Acceleration, Click the icon with three dots at the top right.

Go to settings.

Click on Advanced to expand.

Press F3 to bring search bar.

Now search for Hardware Acceleration.

Turn it off, If It’s turned on

Restart Google Chrome and Check If disabling hardware acceleration fixed or not.

4)-Check Javascript Setting

You may face this problem If Javascript is disabled in your copy of Google Chrome. Enabling Javascript could help you get rid of the issue.

To enable Javascript, All you need to do is Click the icon with three dots at the top right.

Go to settings.

Click on Advanced to expand.

Go to Content settings.

Expand Javascript.

Enable it if It is disabled, restart your computer and then play videos, I hope enabling Javascript will fix the issue.

5)-Disable Extensions

Some Chrome extensions also cause this annoying issue. Some extensions like Ad-blockers and others disable some core features of Google Chrome.

Though It does not work all the time, but Disabling installed extensions could help you fix the error. Don’t disable all extensions at once. Disable installed extensions one after one and then check If It helps or not.

6)-Uninstall And Reinstall Google Chrome

The last option that I can suggest you to fix this annoying error is completely uninstalling Google Chrome with settings and leftovers.

Before you remove Google Chrome, Please keep in mind, If you don’t use Google account to sign into Google Chrome for synchronization then You will lose bookmarks, saved usernames, password, installed extensions and other things.

Before you remove Chrome, Please download and save Google Chrome installer.
