Out of the Blue

I doubt anyone can help me with this, but it's worth a shot. My Discord client crashes a lot. And by a lot, I mean constantly. Dozens of times a day, and sometimes five times in 30 seconds. My repeated troubleshooting efforts have gotten me nowhere. Following tips online I've deleted the app and manually removed its data a dozen times or more, turned off hardware acceleration, and run it as administrator. But it still just quits repeatedly. It does not give an error message and leaves no trace in the Event Viewer. Lots of users seem to have to deal with one-off issues, but I can't seem to find references to anyone else having a chronic problem like this. As I say, I'm not sure what I'm hoping for, but if anyone has a suggestion on how to troubleshoot an app misbehaving this badly, I'd sure appreciate hearing it.

For the record, here is my troubleshooting log:

Run as administrator. Crashed.
Delete all data and reinstalled. Crashed.
Turn off hardware acceleration in the app settings. Crashed.
Turn HDR off. Crashed.
Set input and output to my headset. Crashed.
Turned off hardware acceleration in the video playback settings. Crashed.
Installed 64-bit test build. So far so good.
Turned HDR back on. So far so good. (Reinstalling the app reset all its defaults.)

Interesting. I didn't realize Discord was still a 32-bit app. May go ahead and install the 64-bit test build myself to see if it's less of a resource hog.
