If the problem persists, try clearing the cache. In some cases, this can also be a symptom of hardware starting to fail.

    The reason it could be a hardware issue is that if your hard drive is failing, read/write issues, bad sectors, etc., chrome may experience issues reading and writing cache data to that particular drive.
