I just downloaded the evaluation copy of CS5.1 and install it but I can't open any file. I see it only in the layer tab. Can someone help me? My SO is Win7 Ultimate 32bit. thanks

The file is open, as you can tell from the tab for the document -- but it isn't drawing.

This normally means a problem with your video card driver. As a temporary workaround - try disabling OpenGL drawing in Photoshop's preferences, then close and reopen the file. But you need to update the video card driver from the GPU maker's web site (not Microsoft).

I agree with Chris. Determine what video card you have and go directly to the manufacturers website (nVidia or ATI/AMD) and download the latest driver.

Thank's a lot. I put the driver that I have installed before and it works (without modify the OpenGL). Great!
