Opera goes off from time to time

  • Using normal Opera on a 2 in 1. From time to time Opera goes off, makes the screen black and after few seconds comes back in. At first I thought Windows died, but this happens only when Opera is used. None of the other apps do this. Is there a way to get rid of this problem?
    Windows 32bit. Windows 10, fully updated.

  • Have you tried disabling hardware acceleration?

  • There is no hardware acceleration.

  • There is no hardware acceleration.

    So do you mean that it's already disabled on settings?

  • This is the only app that gets into this kind of problem. When using Edge or Firefox this doesn't happen.

  • Left click Opera, does not power, and instead offers pop-up: You are not Administrator, and lack authorization. (Not verbatim) Same pop-up during browsing sessions powers off Opera. For the record, I am the Administrator. No pattern to this activity. Happens intermittently. Did not occur when I first started using Opera. This began more recently.

    Different softwares, different codes, different issues.

    It doesn't seem to have any relation to this topic's subject. Are you facing the exactly same problem as the OP? If not, please open a new thread to discuss your issue, after have read the forum rules, the pinned posts and a couple of pages in this forum.

  • Does any Opera dev reads comments here? If devs don't read, there's no use asking questions.

  • But you didn't ask any question, you only half-described some Opera misbehavior. You didn't answer leocg second question about hardware acceleration setting either.

    Described your behavior looks very similar to graphics hardware (video card) restarting - this happens usually due to the 'hardware acceleration' features or faulty video driver or some other (mostly hardware) related problem. What kind of video adapter your comp is using?

    Opera devs read comments for sure, but they can't solve unique problems on-line.

  • Does any Opera dev reads comments here?

    Some of them probably do. However, you should not expect them to answer any comments although they may do it eventually.

    there's no use asking questions.

    This place is mainly for users to talk about Opera and try to help each other with their issues.
