Blender opens cmd then main screen opens to a grey background. cmd shows that it failed to set to 44100hz... etc, then that it found the python files. Then as far as I can tell on the three versions I tried, the cmd closes. This is unfortunately where blender crashes for me, it also completely freezes my computer at that moment every time and with every version so I haven't been able to find a bug report or anything after restarting. Ran from cmd and tried debugging with VS 2015 and still crashed and froze with no errors being thrown.
I checked the reddit page and google but the help I found didn't work (trying older versions - couldn't find other answers). I'm hoping that you've come across a similar issue before with possible solutions I can try, as I realise that the information I've given won't help find the issue I'm having.
Thanks in advance
