Photoshop: When I draw, it just keeps creating lines from start to finish

I recently bought a new drawing monitor, hoping to finally try out my Photoshop CS6, but unfortunately, this keeps happening: 
From where I press the tip of my pen against the screen to where I let go, it just creates a line. I've tried uninstalling everything that would apply (drivers, program etc) and reinstalling them, but nope, it doesn't work. Also, my other drawing programs work just fine.
Does anyone know how to fix this?

Update: I noticed that, when I open Photoshop, it does work, but as soon as I move my pen away from the monitor for a few seconds and try again, it starts this issue again. And I should probably mention that Photoshop does this with my sister's drawing monitor as well, while in turn, it works perfectly fine when we use them both in Photoshop on her computer. In other words, it isn't my monitor.
Resetting my tools doesn't work (Shift+Alt+Ctrl), my shift key is most definitely not pressing by accident, and rebooting my computer does nothing to help. The problem lies somewhere else.

Hi Rosa. It might be your Wacom Pen going out. If you drop it to many times, or your pen is old. Have you tried a different pen? Also, try to press the space bar a couple of times. PS has a glitch when your zoomed to close to the canvas/ document it starts having weird problems. When I use pen or brush tool zoomed close to my subject. My Zoom ( magnifying glass) tool takes over. I usually start taping my space bar three or four times, And it free's up. Adobe is aware of that glitch but still hasn't fixed it. I believe it might be a in memory or a scratch disk problem.

Also, I did notice that someone else posted the same or somewhat the same problem on Photoshop Family. They listed on the problems that they had. You might need to do a google search: Tablet Ugee 2150 Monitor not working on Photoshop CS6. You get a lot of hits on your problems. Hope that helps. If not then I would look for a Wacom.

Unfortunately, I have already seen those videos. Trust me, I have been EVERYWHERE. I've even searched "Tablet Ugee 2150 Monitor not working on Photoshop CS6" for answers, but all I found were dead ends and advice that even those questioners reported to not help.

Well, the last three options are call them IT and see if you can talk to them about a fix. It might be your OS. Windows or Mac, I would have them replace your tablet monitor, or get your money back and get a different tablet.
