To be clear RetroArch always works fine the very first time I launch it after restarting, but each time I close and re-open it there’s a chance that it will decide not to work until I completely restart Windows 10. Windows gives me the “retroarch.exe is not responding”, and when I restart, the computer might quickly bluescreen, or hang on the restart screen until I power it off manually.
Most recently, I think it started happening after I accidentally quickly closed RetroArch after opening it, but I don’t know for sure if that was the cause. It would also quickly happen when using the PS2 core, even if I wait a a minute after closing RetroArch before re-opening, but most recently I don’t think I loaded any game and had only been using mGBA that day.
Honestly, I have the suspicion this might be some kind of issue with my graphics card, rather than RetroArch, but maybe somebody here has any ideas about what I could do instead of restarting Windows. Anyways, here is the log RetroArch generated:
