emulation station crash

So I had retropie working fine on ubuntu and games would load from emulation station but due to needing to extend the partition I needed to reinstall the system.
Now I have reinstalled no menu options or games load from emulation station the screen just goes dim. the system is still working and have to force quit ES.
I followed this guide for install - https://retropie.org.uk/docs/Debian/
i have rebuilt the system 3 times now with the same resualts.
video of the problem -
any help would be great
Can you add more details about your system ? What distribution are you using ? How are you starting Emulationstation - are you using the RPie shortcut or not ?
Asus ROG Strix B450-f Gaming
AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core
The os is lubuntu 18.04. It's really strange as the first time i installed the of and compiled retropie using the install script it worked fine and i was playing an n64 game and could open the retropie setting from inside ES and install packaged etc.
After reinstating the os i hasn't worked since and i have started fresh 4 times in an attempt to get it working haha.
How are you starting Emulationstation - are you using the RPie shortcut or not ?
Sorry, both the shortcut and opening it from terminal has the same result
Can you try opening a terminal, then start EmulationStation via
and see if - when the issue occurs - you get any errors ?
Here is a final snippet
"May 03 12:11:25 lvl3: UIModeController::logInput( Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver (XBOX) ):Button 0, isMappedTo= a, , value=1
May 03 12:11:25 lvl2: req sound [video.launch]
May 03 12:11:25 lvl2: (missing)
May 03 12:11:26 lvl2: Attempting to launch game...
So no errors.....
But I have managed to find a fix.
I'm also using the gtx970 as my sound card. if I disable this retropie works fine.
Guess this will just be one of these really odd bugs that only effects me :)
Thank you for your time
