Suddenly Opera No Longer Loads (Windows 10)

  • I had used Opera for quite a while and liked it a lot. But a few months ago I decided to switch back to Chrome.
    Lately I've been unhappy so today I decided to go back to Opera. But when I tried to open it all I get is a completely white window. No title bar or anything. I also had an older Beta version installed but it does the same thing.
    I rebooted, uninstalled, reinstalled and the same problem. Weirdly I can't seem to uninstall the Opera Beta. I go through the uninstall process but nothing happens.

    I tried creating a new Windows user account, and in that account the Opera Beta was already there and I also just get a white window. Nothing else.

    I do not know what has happened. I'd appreciate any help or ideas.

    Thank you.

  • First, for a test, download the Opera installer, launch it, click "options", set "install path" to a folder on your desktop, set "install for" to "standalone installation" and install.

    Does that Opera do the same thing? If so, it sounds like a graphics driver issue. You can go into the folder on the desktop, create a shortcut to launcher.exe, right-click the shortcut, goto "properties" and modify its command to pass --disable-gpu to it.

    "path to launcher.exe" --disable-gpu

    If it works then, it's a GPU issue.

  • For Opera Beta, you can delete:

    "C:\Program Files\Opera Beta"
    "C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\Opera Software\Opera beta"
    "C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera beta"

    Then, when you try to uninstall Opera beta, Windows should ask you to remove the entry.

    You could do the same with regular Opera to if you want to make sure it's uninstalled and your profile is deleted before you reinstall.

    That should clear install issues up if Opera isn't uninstalling properly.

  • I've seen other messags like mine, but I haven't been able to solve this problem... I have a desktop Emachines computer, and I'm using Windows XP. Yesterday, I was using Facebook, and it was working fine. I was checking messages on one page, and playing the "Pirates" app in another window... and it all just stopped working. So I exited everything, and tried to sign back in, but when I did, the home page wouldn't load. It sort of comes up. It says Facebook, and it has the links at the top that say "profile, friends,inbox," and it has the little notification thing at the bottom... The little red bubble says I have 5 notifications, but when I click it nothing happens. I CAN however, click the "profile" link and go to my profile wall. I can see everything there, but none of the links work. I can't remove posts or anything.
