Adjustments only visible after zooming or scrolling

Hello all

I installed CS5 with Photoshop CS5 on my brand new Windows 8.1 system.
(No idea if this even matters...)

Windows 8.1 - 64bit
Creative Suite 5 - Photoshop CS5 64bit & 32bit
installed on Samsung SSD 840 EVO 250 GB - Also used as scratch disk - 140 GB+ available. Also used a normal drive as scratch disk but no difference.

Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3350P CPU @ 3.10 GHz
16GB RAM - 8 GB is reserved for Photoshop (Memory Usage)
GeForce GTX 760
Monitor: Dell U2713HM - Resolution 2560*1440

When I started working I bumped into a really annoying problem. I created a new document and when creating a layer, changing something, hide or make a layer visible, create a shape,... (change something on my canvas) all those changes are not visible on my canvas. After zooming in or out, scrolling the changes appear all of the sudden.

Example of the flow: http://www.mediafire.com/watch/43vuti...

It is like the changes are made but the canvas does not update after a refresh. When using a brush or a the eraser tool, the refresh happens after every "action" and it is visible.

This is the case in the 32bit version and the 64bit version.

I reinstalled the software, updates the software throught Adobe updater.

I had a laptop before this desktop where it just ran fine.

No idea what causes it...

Thanx for helping out!

Sounds like your video driver might not be up to date and showing a few bugs. Go to the GPU maker's website and update the driver (not Microsoft, and not the system integrator).

Also make sure you have all the Photoshop CS5 updates installed.

Thanx for replying.

I did install all the Adobe updates, reinstalled the latest drivers again. No change...

Did this issue also occur with other people you know who got it fixed? Maybe it is something known.
And how did they got it fixed?

The only time we've seen things like this were due to bugs in video card drivers, and were fixed by updating the video card drivers from the GPU maker's website.

I guess I'll dive into the Nvidia forum then...

Thanx for the help.
