30 seconds to a minute live, crashes to 0 kb/s - Log Attached

Hey everyone. Super frustrating experiencing this.

Will click Start Streaming, and my kbs will drop to 0, the stream is alive for less than a minute and then will die for my viewers and fully on twitch. OBS doesn't crash, and the icon will still be red saying "stop streaming".

I have a few logs of this happening while trying to make it work today. CPU usage will jump up as well.

I have streamed no problem with my own PC for games and whatnot, literally a couple of days ago. This is now with a laptop.

See logs attached.

Any ideas?

Any ideas?

You have an older Ultra-low power CPU, and real-time video encoding is VERY computationally demanding. Your are trying to participate in a car race with a electric scooter.
I recommend monitoring hardware resource (CPU, GPU, RAM, etc) utilization [for ex. using Task manager’s Performance tab and/or Resource Monitor] to see if your system is being maxed out with your settings (most likely is). So you will most likely need to optimize Operating System and OBS for an under-powered system.
Maybe back off 60fps??
And first and foremost, try uninstalling that PoS StreamElements plugin (a common co-existance with problem systems)
