    This issue has become annoying for me for sooo long time.. at first i couldn't detect the problem and what is causing it.

    Um..yeah, i guess i should tell what's the problem.
    Whenever i enable AERO theme and open Chrome
    The chrome starts lagging (not being smooth like normally is)
    after some time, and it stops and get back to normal after
    i minimize and maximize it again, than it stops and function normally.
    but after some time it lags again and i minimize and
    maximize AGAIN...and so on and so on... it became annoying...
    in fact it's happening again and i LIKE Aero theme...

    So the problem happens as i noticed, while aero is on, but there are no chrome problems when classic theme is on...

    Please give me suggestions :/ my head hurts....

    Get a different browser?

    Why not try Opera?

    Because i love chrome and Aero theme, but i dont know what's causing this
    Its not browser (i think it's not) problem is in theme, because, as i said, when i set to classic its normal, when i use aero problems emerge..its nothing special or alarming, just annoying ANNOYING! -_-

    Reinstall chrome then.
    Otherwise update windows if you haven't done so.
    If it still isn't fixable, reinstall windows.

    Or, just switch browsers.

    Then it must be your settings.
    Or ISP...
    Which could be the blame.

    Maybe its just a case of not enough ram or not enough power under the hood to run both

    Given the fact that Firefox also never fixed it's memory leak bugs....

    Got to love Opera.

    And yep, without specs of your pc, it's hard to tell what's the problem.

    But does that mean that my problem would be constant...because it happens at random.

    And about my PC specs...

    CPU: Intel Pentium G620 dual cores @2.60GHz
    RAM: Kingston 4GB Hyper X @1333 MHz DDR3
    VGA: Saphire Radeon HD6770 1GB GDDR5
    ....

    yeah it's time for you to update your video drivers, go to the amd website and download the newest one for your card

    Oh yeah your specs are more than adequate, so yeah I would put it down to drivers, that's the only thing I can think of it being, that or something hardware wise is starting to fail but that still wouldn't put it exclusively with chrome. Its quite perplexing really

    yeah, sounds like old drivers, or something with the video card itself, Aero uses the video card more than the classic mode. so anything weird going on with the video card will affect the aero desktop theme

    Hm..strange...when i open ATI catalyst "automaticly check for updates" is checked and it's saying "AMD catalyst 11.8, last update 22.10.2013." so judging by that, my graphics driver is UP to date... don't know about motherboard drivers though....

    Oh and my PC is relatively new..about a year and a half

    And yeah, its Chrome exclusive problem

    Edit: It came into my mind...maybe NEW drivers are making problems...could it be?

    sometimes, i have no idea why, the amd drivers kinda go crazy and make weird issues appear, try uninstalling them, download them from the site, and install them again, see if that makes any difference
