Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.
Is the issue present in the latest stable version?
If the issue isn't present in the latest stable version, which is the first broken version? (You can find the first broken version by bisecting. Windows users can use the tool https://forums.dolphin-emu.org/Thread-green-notice-development-thread-unofficial-dolphin-bisection-tool-for-finding-broken-builds and anyone who is building Dolphin on their own can use git bisect.)
[First broken version number here (if applicable)]
If your issue is a graphical issue, please attach screenshots and record a three frame fifolog of the issue if possible. Screenshots showing what it is supposed to look like from either console or older builds of Dolphin will help too. For more information on how to use the fifoplayer, please check here: https://wiki.dolphin-emu.org/index.php?title=FifoPlayer
[Attach any fifologs if possible, write a description of fifologs and screenshots here to assist people unfamiliar with the game.]

Does just Dolphin crash or does really, as you phrased it, the entire computer lock up? Because if it's the latter that's a driver crash.
Pardon my phrasing. All drivers are up to date and I have no issues with any game in or outside of Dolphin other than this problem. I am able to Alt+Tab to see the programs open. I am able to open Task Manager but can only see it in the Alt+Tab selection. I am unable to change the screen from the white dialogue box on a black screen.
This is likely a dual core crash. I will try to play this evening without the extra cores turned on. I attempted the same spot on the stable 5.0 with no issues. No problems experienced entering water anywhere else.

Please test this build with your current settings (with dual core enabled): https://dl.dolphin-emu.org/prs/76/a2/pr-8715-dolphin-latest-x64.7z
This build is intended to fix the freeze. You will still get an error message, but it should show up correctly and you should be able to close it. (Single core is the fix for the error message showing up, but I would like you to test whether this build works as intended so that we know if it is a working fix for the freeze issue.)

- Fixed in set to 5.0-11832
- Status changed from New to Fixed
That pull request is now merged, so... I guess I'm closing this? Please comment if Dolphin still freezes, and we will re-open the issue.
