When I make a new document or open any existing document I see layers etc. just nothing on the canvas - blank (black) page no matter what I do. I can even use all the tools and click on canvas, just the canvas stays black.

When I click on the document name on left corner the image is shown for a moment and then gone again.

I re installed Photoshop, doesn't solve the problem. I have Windows 7 / Photoshop CS6.

Any ideas. Thanks.

This is a common problem with some old video card drivers.
Update your video card driver from the GPU maker's website, and follow their instructions for how to update.
