Win XP's Chrome V27.0.1453.110 laptop gives blank/dark screen when playing

I was able to play the movies in  till about 1 month ago on my
32bit Win XP's  Chrome Ver 27.0.1453.110 but 2 days ago, I discovered that
it just gives blank/dark screen (with the circling arrows indicating it's downloading)
when I played any movies there.  At the same time when I used Chrome to play
movies in, they played fine.

On my Win 7 laptop, I could play exactly the same movie in (as well
as fine though.  What could be the reason?

Need to upgrade flash player or chrome?

Close chrome and
Navigate to the file path  users\%username%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache
Delete all files and folders there
Giva a try for your url, if it dosn't work so again navigate to the path and delete all from there then download and install latesr release of chrome

flash is included with chrome so if you update chrome (current version is 45.0.2454.101) you will have flash updated also

you are running an insecure browser on an insecure operating system
My advice would be to generally stop using XP for anything that accesses the web, like web-browsing, email etc. XP has been dead and unsupported for over an Year now, and keeping on using it for such high risk activities is asking for and inviting trouble. If you want to use XP, then disable it's LAN adapters and modem and only use it for local stuff.

If you must use XP for online stuff, then at least make sure your Chrome browser is up-to-date (I believe the newest version is above version 40).
