Layered Photoshop document turns to a mish-mash of colour blocks

Whilst working on a layered photoshop file, the page all of a sudden became what I could describe a miss-mash of process colour blocks and page elements, it was as though all the layers had been jumbled up. I then closed the file, quite photoshop but on re-opening many of the solid colour fills on my document were missing, or had section cut out. I was able to rectify the problem but this has never occurred before. It affected several of the window that I had open. See attached

Which version of Photoshop are you using?
Which OS version are you using?

And this looks like a bug in a video card driver.
Disabling the GPU in Photoshop's preferences and restarting the app may help.

Hi Chris, Thanks for your reply and pardon the poor spelling in my original post. I'm using OSX 10.7.5, and Photoshop CC 14.2.1 x64. I do get a message on opening Photoshop that I do not have enough memory for the video card or something along those lines.

That message is about disabling the 3D features because you don't have enough VRAM.

And yes, you should probably turn off GPU usage in Photoshop. Apple will not be fixing the drivers in MacOS 10.7 (they're still busy fixing the issues in 10.10).
