I had the same issue an my older nvidia 550ti, and just upgraded to a gtx 950. I made it the whole first day, but now it's back.  

When I crop or change the screen size it flashes a different photo for a brief moment before showing the correct photo.

Obviously disabling the gpu fixes the problem, but this isn't 2015 : )

Here is a video showing the issue

I've had the same issue (with a different graphics card) since gpu acceleration was first added to LR.

Also, I don't think this is related, but anyone have a guess as to why LR would use 5GB of virtual memory, when I have 20GB of ram available (out of 32)?

Hi Dan,

We are not able to reproduce this issue.Can you provide some more information like exactly what are you doing to reproduce this.
And also the video link which you provided doesn't seems to work(it's not opening).

I apologize, the link formatting to the video got screwed up. This should work:

It's interesting, now watching the video on youtube it appears to drop a few frames. The "old" picture shows up everytime I turn the crop tool on or off. In the video you can only see it with the crop tool once or twice, but in reality it was every time.

"Version: 3.3.0 NVIDIA 372.90"

LR has been tripping over bugs in recent versions of the Nvidia drivers.  Either roll back to a previous version:  or try the most recent version, which Nvidia says fixes a bug that tripped up LR and which some users report improves other LR symptoms:

I agree with John. Try updating to v375.86 of the nVidia driver (which has documented fixes for issues that affected Lightroom) and let us know if you're still having trouble.

This was resolved by updating drivers. I typically do my driver updates using windows device manager, but it wasn't finding the latest drivers. I had to go to the nvidia website to download.
