Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

Just to add this: I search the new drivers but it turns out I have custom drivers that may not function properly if I install newer generic ones from Intel.

OEM drivers are usually behind Intel by quite a large margin, usually it is fine to update to Intel’s.

Download win64_15.33.50.5129.zip from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/29473/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-15-33-?product=85552
direct link: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/29473/a08/win64_15.33.50.5129.zip

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/

Since you have an old GPU which can randomly crash due to a driver bug you might also need to use Nightly 1392 until you upgrade your computer: https://github.com/citra-emu/citra-nightly/releases/tag/nightly-1392

Thank you so much!! Much better than steam’s support XD
