Raspberry boots when opening Chromium

Sat Oct 20, 2018 4:18 am

Hi, I have a brand new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ and I have Installed Noobs V 2_8_2.
Everything else works fine but when I open Chromium browser it boots Raspberry immediately. Is my raspberry faulty or is there something wrong in Chromium?

Do you mean "re" boots?

Possibly a power issue, Chromium uses a lot of resources. A poor quality supply or cable may crash at the sudden current required from running Chromium.

Edited to correct some misspellings introduced by autoincorrect on my phone.

Stop plugging your fan directly into the GPIO 5v

Hi,

Thank you - changing the power supply fixed the issue! I meant re-boots as you guessed.
