Chrome won't open any pages, blank pages

Google chrome won't open any pages.
I have installed this on many computers. This one computer (fairly new Gateway) installed fine, but brings up a blank page. No links or web pages come up.
I have checked proxy and Firewall.

I've been having the same issue. I've uninstalled and reinstalled it several times, but there was no change. I used Chrome for awhile until this issue began, now I'm stuck with Firefox.
I thought I would find an answer here but apparantly not.It opens to a blank page. I tried unstalling and installing twice.
Same thing here. Just blank pages. Doesn't seem to even try to access web. New tabs show immediately blank with "about:blank" label. Bookmarks don't work, nor do any attempts to type in url.
Same problem here.. Chrome worked fine in the beginning, but now all of a sudden nothing shows up... (I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling multiple times over several months and its not blocked by any firewall) any help would be awesome and loved Chrome while it was working..
try this ,after reinstallig it show a box saying"do you want to set google as you default search engine" click on change it will show dialogue box for Google chrome option at the basic>home page>check on the new tab page. and close,instantly your Google chrome will show tab with 8 boxes.
it works for me after i was getting sick of using Mozilla.
