I deleted a previous incomplete post.

AMD Radeon HD8570 - driver 17.7+. W10 64bit

Problems remain after updating to AMD 17.8.1

Problem can be circumvented by first setting the graphics card to factory settings, starting PS without graphics processor, then enabling graphics in PS and finally using "edit in PS" from LR.

you gave PS a hart attack :(
and because everyone will say it, check your video card drivers lol.
is this on a laptop? 
if so and the Laptop has a separate video processor you may have to have a talk with your video card.
On a Laptop the computer saves power by running video processing throe the CPU, instead of the Video cards. you can tell the computer to use the video card isted for PS and LR instead.

with a nvidia card this is how you force it be turned on.

this is my best GUESS from information provided, good luck i hope this helps a little, 

sorry about my spelling i'm a bit dyslexic

you may also wont to share more information about your computer, the easiest way is to go to Edit/Preferences/Performance(tab)/System info(button) .... copping this information especially the top part can help myself and others in diagnosing and solving your issue

Thank you for your comment. I don't have an nvidea card.
This problem started after the driver upgrade to 17.7.+ rolling back causes problems with other applications
It's also reported here under an in my view inaccurate title about an ACR updare.
