Was able to play pokemon AS normally the night before on 1737. When i went to play the next day with 1738 it loaded in with black bars on the right side then stopped loading at all. could still hear and move around but coudnt see. sometimes it would just crash completely or do the thing with the bars again but the black scren is most common

Your drivers are outdated, you need to update.
Download and run igfx_win_101.1191.exe from Intel® Graphics – Windows* DCH Drivers

Then test your game again.

Please upload a log file yourself.

i figured it was out of date, i tried the link you said but the driver is restricted by the manufacturer(lenovo) i looked but i cant find it on the website so im at a loss. i have the Yoga 730-15IKB laptop

In my case, I’m actually running Windows 11 (even though the log file says 10 for some reason). Also, I can select a language before I get a black screen and Citra crashes.

EDIT: I updated my GPU driver and I’ve gotten games to load in. However, they eventually freeze on an image. I can still hear my button inputs, though

i went to the lenovo page and updated my rivers and the games no longer fail to boot but now all the ones that work have black bars on the right third of the screen and the whole screen occasionally flickers, not sure what to do now, it does the same on AS UM and X

sorry, here is log for last attempt, forgot to add it

Your drivers are still out of date, please follow the instructions I have previously given you instead of going to the Lenovo page.
