Short description of error
Blender 2.8 closes at start-up.

The strange thing is, once in a while (approximately 1 out of 20) it will start and I can modelling for example works. But when I try to go into lookdev mode it usually shuts down anyway and the same thing with opening project files.
I am having the same problem for a month now with all the daily builds on my laptop. (The daily builds before that did work)
Blender 2.8 runs just fine on the desktop.

I tried the following:
Starting Blender via cmd
Starting Blender via cmd with --factory-startup
Starting Blender via cmd with --debug-gpu
Removing Blender 2.79b

Drivers are up-to-date.

Cmd reports:
