Photoshop CC 2015: Background changes colour. Lasso tool too.

Hey, so I downloaded Photoshop CC 2015 a few days ago. I had Photoshop CS5 before that, so I already knew what it was all about. The thing is that in this new Photoshop, whenever I start using the brush tool the background starts changing its colour. It goes very quickly from grey to white to black again and again.
Moreover, if I use the lasso tool what goes white grey isn't the background but the canvas itself. I've tried downloading it again after uninstalling it and it still does that.
Does someone know how to solve that?

I would suspect a bad video driver.

Determine what video card you have and go *directly to the manufacturers website (nVidia or ATI/AMD)* and download the latest driver:

Just doing Windows Update won't give you the latest and greatest drivers. You must go directly to your card manufacturers website to check for driver updates.
