Black screen when on Facebook

  • Updated 3 years ago
So, my screen went black in the middle of reading a post on Facebook. I could here people posting because I hear a tone when they do but no picture. This happened on Chrome and Opera. I am at the very beginning of my new cycle, only a gig used(may be) and on top of this issue, my speed is painfully SLOW. I can barely play Facebook games. It takes 5 min to load Farmville 2. So what's the issue this time?

Hello Waterpixe70,

Are you only showing this on your facebook pages? It could be a browser or video player error if it's happening when trying to watch a gif or video. Are you noticing it on other pages?

I was on my home page, no videos or gifs. Did it twice today.

Lots of hits on that topic with Google:

My guess: browser, adobe flash or video device driver itself.

Maybe it's on Facebook side. Have heard people say they have trouble with Facebook and they have cable,WiFi  not satellite. Sometimes think FB just gets over loaded.
