Photoshop 8 is pretty old, are you talking about Photoshop Elements 8?

And that sounds like a video driver problem (updating it may help).

Yes, the video card driver could give problems just for pictures. Go to the GPU maker's web site and see if there are updated drivers available. The ones from Microsoft are usually quite old.
