You need to disable Hardware acceleration from your chrome.
Settings - Advanced - System - Use hardware acceleration when available OFF
Just tried worked for me.
Somehow --disable-gpu wont work.
I think you will need to add a registry key. I found this on google you could try it :
Hold down the Windows Key and press “R” to bring up the Run window.
Type “regedit“, then press “Enter” to bring up the Registry Editor.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Policies \ Google \ Chrome
Note: You may have to create the “Google” and “Chrome” folders.
Right-click “Chrome” and select “New” > “DWORD 32-bit value“
Give the value a name of “HardwareAccelerationModeEnabled“.
Set the value data to “0” to disable Hardware Acceleration.
Set it to “1” to enable it.
