Photoshop: Fill pattern not working

I am able to define a pattern

..when i go to fill a layer- I select the pattern, click the settings and hit ok- the loading bar pops up-then nothing, like it never happened. its still a blank layer.

Yes, I have the whole page selected. It's not working with script patterns eiter IE: brick.

 

Ive tried reinstalling and restarting. Also purging.

 

It worked fine last night, im not sure what the issue is. I did have to force close PS once, could that have messed it up?

Can you create a Pattern Layer (Layer > New Fill Layer > Pattern)? 
Could you please post screenshots taken at View > 100% and with the pertinent Panels (Layers, Channels, Options Bar, ...) visible? (one with the Fill dialog still open and one of the result)

What have you done for trouble-shooting aside from reinstalling so far? 

Restoring Preferences after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved might be a good starting point:

Probably a silly question, but when you add a fill layer, you get two dialogs, the first allows you to set mode and opacity and the second presents pattern selection - have you checked that mode is set to normal and opacity set > 0% in the first dialogue?

Hi. You need to use the paint bucket tool. It's the best tool for lots of things. I don't know what your settings were, but it's of no use unless you tell us what settings were used.
Make sure you make the Options Bar look like this above).So obviously Tap the little pattern picto thing on the bar which opens up all the patterns to choose. When you find the pattern that you want, click away to close it. Then you are ready to just click it into your layer.
If you make a selection it will fill that only. It will work on a layer mask as well. I am really really NEW to this site, only an Hour or so ago. If it works ask me more questions. You might help me in learning to Navigate this Familia site. There's more to the Bucket tool than has been mentioned here, like Discontiguous and Sample all layers. It's the best tool in the world and my most favorite. You can look at my Quora site here::::      https://www.quora.com/profile/Gerald-Pavalko-1
Also never allow 'narrow options bar" in Psd Preferences. It won't work because it chops off the Sample all layers option. I know that lots of people have problems learning Photoshop. I want to Do a Psd Book in a video format. This site seems very friendly. Don't forget to call back somehow so I can learn how that works. IS THERE ANY WAY TO MAKE THIS SPACE TALLER? Feels like I'm driving a Tank.
