I've tried reinstalling Google Chrome several times and even downloading it directly from Google's website, but it never opens. When I go to the terminal and type "google-chrome" and "google-chrome-stable", neither one of them results in Google Chrome opening up.

It did at one point, but I'm not sure what caused it to stop working. It doesn't give me an error or anything when I launch it. Instead, it just hangs the cursor onto the next blank line (without a prompt, and as if it was actually running).

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Try going into the software center and download Chromium browser or in your terminal type

 Sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

Chromium is the same thing as google chrome :)
