Hello. I use photoshop CC2015 and have problems with this software. When I use a lot of tools like all types of Transform, when I write Text and in many more situations my working area disappears (it becomes black) for moment, or till I make next move. For example I use Text tool and try to write something and out of a sudden whole working area (all tools, tables and other elements of user interface are ok) become black, then I continue to write and working area flashes black/standrd/black/standard with every letter. Similar situation while I transform but instead of flashing when I type letter it flashes while I move cursor with mouse. I try to resize some element and at some points working area is black, when I move cursor a bit it appears again, but disappear with next move.

I use Windows 10. Had the same problem while using trial of PS CC 2015. Earlier used Photoshop CS6 on windows 7 - no problems at all at the same CPU.

If needed I can try to record this bug while working.

Update your video card drivers from the GPU maker's website. If you have a dual GPU system, make sure you update both, and disable automatic GPU switching if you can (so Photoshop always uses the more powerful GPU).
