Just recently I purchased an MSI GT70 Laptop. After loading all the latest drivers and after installing CS6, I noticed I couldn't open a photograph in CS6 as long as the GPU was enabled. However, if I switched to a non High Contrast Theme in Windows 8, then the Photo would open and work properly.

That sounds like your video card driver was unhappy with the high contrast theme for some reason (possibly because it's a non-aero theme?).

Have you updated your video card driver from the GPU maker's website?
