Options in Chrome browser gave a blank tab

I wanted to restore the last browsing session's tabs & followed the steps below
but Chrome launched a new tab which is completely blank.  What's wrong with
my Chrome?

My laptop is running Win XP Professional SP3 & Task Manager shows there's
still sufficient available CPU & memory.  Let me know if you need me to post
HijackThis output.

Chrome Restore last session's tabs:
In the Options' dialog Basics area, under "Open the following pages," enter the URLs.
Open the last session's tabs automatically. Also like Firefox, Chrome can automatically restore the tabs from your last browser session. In that same Options area as above, just select "Restore the pages that were open last."

if you want to recover your last session, whether you closed it accidentally or Chrome crashed. here's how you do it.

1. create a copy of Chrome's shortcut and name it whatever you want.
2. right click on it and click Properties.
3. under the Target: textbox position the cursor at the end of the line and add a space after chrome.exe and type or copy-paste this "-restore-last-session" without the quotes
4. now, click open the new shortcut that you've just created

Click the wrench in the upper right corner.
Go to "Options."
Under "On Startup," select "restore the pages that were last open."
Click close.
if you open Chrome already and it showed you a fresh tab then will be your last session currently, you can no longer retrieve the previous session/s unless you're using a third party software for this task. this suggestions of mine can't be used if this is the case.
*then that will be your last session
