Whenever I open the material view (not just in eevee) my entire computer freezes AND when I go to the rendered view (only in eevee) it also freezes, along with the screen flickering to black for a few seconds, every time this happens (aside from a few rare cases where the computer will come back to life after a few seconds) I have to restart the computer. I have tried installing every update since 2.8 but they all have the same problem. Here are the specs:
iMac : 21.5-inch, Late 2009
Processor : 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory : 8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
Startup Disk : iMac HD
Graphics : NVIDIA GeForce 9400 256 MB (From 2008)
I would love some help with this problem as its lead to many lost hours of work!
