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  • You are running out of date drivers for your GPU.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

Tried that, said no supported driver or software updates are available for my system

Need to update manually. Make sure Windows is updated first, you should be on 21H2 or 22H2. Open Windows Update.

1903 is 3.5 years old (19 = 2019, 03 = March).

After that, the link for latest drivers can be found here:
direct link:

Just tried this but it said it’s locked to manufacturer so try downloading it from them? is there another update from microsoft that i should be looking for?

Ok, if you get that message you will need to downgrade to 6373 manually, then you will be able to update to latest drivers.

then follow this guide to install it:

Now run the installer that you downloaded earlier.

Consider to run this tool afterwards to hide the old drivers from Windows Update so Windows won’t rollback to them:

Worked! Thank you! Appreciate the help.
