I am so tired of photoshop locking up. It is the only program that does it and it always does it when I zoom in on a photo, my computer will start racing and it won't respond until I use task manager to shut it down.

What version of Photoshop are you using?
What OS version?

What you describe sounds a lot like a bug in a video card driver.

Check Help->System Info in Photoshop to see what Photoshop knows about your GPU. You might still have old driver bits, or be using an integrated GPU part instead of the NVidia GPU.
