“He’s Dead Jim” Error on Google Chrome

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Hey Folks!

I recently installed Google Chrome on my Sony Vaio.

It works fine however sometimes I get an error from it saying:

"He's Dead Jim"

He's Dead, Jim!

Either Chrome ran out of memory or the process for the webpage was terminated for some other reason.

To continue, reload or go to another page.

Learn more

Does any one know what is wrong?  I have heard a lot of good reviews about Google Chrome.

Do help me.

Thanks a lot.

“He’s Dead Jim” Error on Google Chrome


People who often encounter this problem just think that Google Chrome isn't supported by their system and stop using it. 

Actually, not only Google Chrome, but  any other browsers, runs out of memory , crashes, gives a crash report or simply hangs up. Google Chrome being an outstanding product, terminates itself in the case of low memory. 

So find out what programs are you running in excess, and stop all those unwanted programs and save memory.  Actually, we should be thanking Google Chrome for this functionality though sometimes it crashes before browsers could trigger the hard disk crash.

“He’s Dead Jim” Error on Google Chrome



One may see the “He’s Dead, Jim!” message if the operating system has terminated the tab’s process due to a lack of memory. Computers rely on memory to run programs. Low amounts of memory can cause programs to run slowly or stop running altogether.
Alternatively, if one terminate the process using Google Chrome's Task Manager, the system's task manager, or with a command line instrument, this message will appear as well.
Task Manager:- Open the Task Manager
These instructions apply to Google Chrome on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome OS.
1. Click the wrench icon  on the browser instrumentbar.
2. Select Instruments.
3. Select Task manager.
If the page wasn’t ended intentionally, reload the page to continue. If the message continues to appear, try closing inactive tabs or other programs to free up more memory.
2) Close tabs and windows
• Tabs: Click the x icon on the tab, or use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+W (Windows and Linux) and ⌘-W (Mac) to close a tab.
• Windows: Click the x icon in the corner of the window, or use the keyboard shortcuts Alt+F4 (Windows and Linux) and ⌘-Shift-W (Mac) to close a window. Closing the last tab in a window also automatically closes the window.
If one accidentally close a tab or window, one can easily recover it on the New Tab page.
Close Google Chrome
Click the wrench icon   on the browser instrumentbar and select Exit to close all open tabs and windows.
If one using Google Chrome on a Mac, one can also set the browser to show one a warning before one close the browser. This warning is disabled by default. Follow these steps to turn it on:
1. Click Chrome on the top menu bar.
2. Select Warn Before Quitting (⌘Q).
Force a webpage or application to close
1. Click the wrench icon   on the browser instrumentbar.
2. Select Instruments.
3. Select Task manager.
4. Select the webpage one like to close.
5. Click End process.
One can also use the keyboard shortcutShift+Esc (Windows and Linux) to open the Task Manager.
1) Uninstall Chrome
2) Open Windows Explorer
3) If one do not have Show Hidden Files enabled, then in Windows Explorer hit Instruments – Folder Options – View -Select 'Show Hidden Files and Folders – OK.
4) Navigate to C:Documents and Settings[the user one using]Local SettingsApplication DataGoogle
5) Delete the Chrome folder.  (some process had this folder locked for me, so I had to navigate into each subdirectory within the folder and delete all files manually)
6) Reboot
7) Install Chrome
Solution-Here is a list of some program which are incompatible with Google Chrome browser.
• Venturi Firewall
• WinMount
• PPLive
• NVIDIA network access manager
• IS3 Anti Spyware
• SpeedBit Video Accelerator
• Folder Guide
If one have any of the following software, one may try to temporarily disable it and than see if it resolves one issue:
There are also other software's which are also incompatibles with Google Chrome, but one don’t need to disable whole software's to solve one crash issues.
• Internet Download Manager (IDM) – disable the ‘Advanced browser integration’ option within IDM (go to Options > General).
• NVIDIA Desktop Explorer – try to remove the nvshell.dll library using the steps on this site:http://www.spywareremove.com/
• FolderSize – try the fix on this site: https://sourceforge.net/p/foldersize/patches/5/
• NOD32 version 2.7 – upgrade to the latest version of NOD32 or disable internet monitoring in NOD32 2.7.
To find and remove offending libraries, go to Start > Run, enter cmd, and check in %windir%system32 for userlib.dll, tcpipdog0.dll, tcpipdog1.dll, and tcpipdog3.dll. If one find them, delete them.
One should also search for userinit32.exe, which one can remove using PrevX.
I hope this may help one to solve the Google Chrome crash issues.

“He’s Dead Jim” Error on Google Chrome



I have read your problem. It’s regarding Google Chrome crashing down sometime, right?

  1. Well first of all, I would like to tell you that the Google Chrome which you are using may be corrupted or may have been downloaded from an unknown or not trusted site. This basically means it's a faulty software. Now, all you need to do is go to www.google.com and search for the latest version of Google Chrome. When you get the setup file, the download will automatically start and the new Google Chrome will be automatically installed in your computer. Please restart your computer and hopefully all the problems will be resolved. Please do try this first, otherwise try another procedure.
  2. Please go to www.adobe.com and search for the latest version of A) Adobe flash Player, B) Adobe Shockwave player. Please download these two programs in your computer. After downloading the programs please install both the software's in your computer. After installing, please restart your computer again so that the changes can be made to the existing settings.

Now try using Google Chrome again and this time I am sure you won’t face any problem.

I hope I have made myself clear on the various ideas and processes I have told you.

If you are not clear on any part,  please do not hesitate to reply me back.

I will try my best to solve your problem again.

“He’s Dead Jim” Error on Google Chrome


Please try these steps:

1st solution:
Check your antivirus setting and firewall setting. If it’s on turn it off. Sometimes they can prevent operation of Google chrome. 
Close and open the application. Hope it works.
2nd solution:
Add-on/extension can filter normal operation of chrome. Try disabling your extension and add-ons and toolbars and restart the application. 
3rd solution:
Sometimes problems are virus related.
In that case you can follow the following process:
Windows XP: %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\
Windows Vista and Windows 7: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\
Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default
Linux: ~/.config / google-chrome/Default
Rename the folder as backup default, then restart Chrome.
4th solution:
Just clear the cache from history and restart the application.
Hope it helps.
