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

  • You are running out of date drivers for your GPU. You need to install the most recent driver for your graphics card from Intel’s website. Support for Intel® Graphics

Before you update the drivers, open winver (do a simple Windows search near the Start button) and tell us if you are on like 21H2.

Yes, my system is on 21H2, and the intel driver support assistant scanned my computer and did not suggest a graphics driver update

Follow these steps:

Download this intermediate driver: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/28289/a08/win64_25.20.100.6373.zip
(necessary to bypass the “cannot be validated” error that can happen if you try to update to the latest driver from a veeeery old version which 4836 is, it’s from 2017).

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 6373 is installed, download and install Intel® Graphics – Windows* DCH Drivers from: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/sku/122589/intel-core-i78550u-processor-8m-cache-up-to-4-00-ghz/downloads.html
