Hi everybody,

I hope someone could help me.

I know this problem was discussed several time but maybe someone found a solution.

 

The Photoshop background (with or without photo) shows rapidly white flashing using some tools like brush and clone.

here and example founded in youtube

I have an asus with these spec. :Intel Core i7-8750H, RAM 16 GB DDR4,  Nvidia GTX1050Ti  4 GB DDR5.

 

Deactivating the discrete videocard (in Nvidia panel)  or just the Graphic Acceleration Option in photoshop preferences solved the problem but as you can imagine using photoshop with just only the integrated card or the Nvidia card without graphic acceleration  is not the best  choice because it becomes slow after a while.  

 

Do you know another solution different from the official ones listed by Adobe?

 

I have all the drivers updated.

 

Thanks in advantage.

It may help if we could see your Photoshop SystemInfo. Launch Photoshop, and select Help > System Info... and copy/paste thetext in a reply.

Unfortunately I sent  back the notebook to the seller because this problem but after a while, reading on the internet,  I understood a lot of people had the same problem as mine and so this issue was not because my graphic card or something strange in the notebook but maybe something related to Photoshop (I had this problem only with it).
Because of this consideration I wrote here, in the hope to have a solution that could make me assure I can buy it again. 
Also without the info you requested me do you know something about the problem I described in the first post?
Thanks in advantage,

Mostly likely graphics card/driver related.

Considering your knowledge, do you think this issue could be fixed?  
Video card is ( Nvidia GTX1050Ti  4 GB DDR5.) but the problem is also with other video cards.

I'm searching other solution than deactivating gpu.

I'm asking you this because I read several  similar post around the internet (also here) and nobody was able to fix this problem. Maybe you could be the first :)

I suspect it would be fixed by updating the graphics card or making the discreet card the preferred card if there are more than one cards.

Yes. I dit it before but unfortunately the only way to fix the issue was making the integrated card the preferred one or disabling the graphics acceleration option (using in this case the Nvidia Card). That's it. The best option for me was using only the integrated card, the only doubt about it is if this choice is good for working with Photoshop with heavy files  after a while (someone wrote that notebook becomes slow using only the integrated card).

Reading the spec of the notebook I wrote in the first post what do you think? Integrated card is Intel® UHD Graphics 630.

The other spec are ASUS TUF FX705GE-EW104T Notebook con monitor 17.3" FHD No Glare IPS 60Hz, Intel Core i7-8750H, RAM 16 GB DDR4, 1 TB Firecuda + 256 GB SSD, Nvidia GTX1050Ti da 4 GB DDR5 .     

 Thanks again
