I just downloaded and installed Photoshop CS6 Trial Version.
All the pictures I have opened up in Photoshop come out as mosaics or partial pictures.
Is there an incorrect setting that needs adjusting?

Update your video card driver from the GPU maker's website to fix the bugs in the driver.

Until you can get the driver updated, you could turn off the GPU in preferences - but then all GPU dependent features will be disabled.

Right on Chris!
Your Solution is 100% correct! After I posted my problem I went to
[http://forums.adobe.com/thread/433020...] and got the idea to update my video driver.
To others, don't be fooled by the name, your "video card" is responsible for graphics too!
My Laptop is an HP with an AMD Radeon card.
The website [http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDSu...]
had the free driver update I needed.
After I downloaded and installed it I did not even have to restart my laptop before I opened was was using my corrected Photoshop CS6 Trial version.
I'm very happy!
