I've had this problem for a while now since installing Lightroom CC Classic. I can edit photos when I am in the Catalog page. However, I like to use smart collections. I can be in the Library module and go to the smart collection folders, but when I go to the develop module and go to smart collections, Lightroom freezes and I have to force quit it. 
Lightroom is currently installed on an NVMe drive.

Hi Denis,

Thanks for sharing the crash report via Adobe Crash Reporter. The submitted crash report appears to be a problem on the graphics driver system side. Can you make sure that you have the latest graphics diver installed?
You can follow the Solution 1 mentioned in helpx doc: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/kb/crash-gpu-directx-enabled.html to get update to the version of the driver.

Hello Satish, 

I updated the drivers and I can now get to the develop module without it crashing. However, now whenever I go to the develop module in smart collections or catalog, the picture goes completely black. Any suggestions would be awesome. Thanks for your help so far.
