Freezing in Pokemon Alpha Sapphire

Issue: Game Freezes in Alpha Sapphire Game
Enter a description of your issue here, in full detail.
Upon entering the Petalburg City gym, once I talk to Norman (“dad”), the game freezes and Citra goes to 0FPS. I am able to exit the gym and continue towards the next route, but once I talk to Norman, I can’t do anything else. Please help

then follow this guide to install it: https://www.howtogeek.com/343287/how-to-fix-the-driver-being-installed-is-not-validated-for-this-computer-on-intel-computers/

After you have installed that you can if you want update further(recommended): https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/29465/Intel-Graphics-Windows-10-DCH-Drivers?product=88959 (download the .exe this time).

Still does not work after I’ve updated my driver. Still freezes when I talk to Norman.
