Since I upgraded the ssd drive, using Photoshop CC(Both 22.5.8 and 23.4.1) completly deadlocks the system(no mouse movement nor keyboard input, sometimes reset button takes more than 5 seconds to force restart PC) within 2-3min upon opening any files. And I couldn't find any solution yet what is exactly causing the deadlock in first place. This is what I tried so far:
Turned off GPU processing
lowered cache tile size
DDU and reinstall graphics driver
Reinstalled NVMe driver
Uninstalled NVMe driver
Reinstlled Adobe CC
Refreshed Windows 10 using media creation tool
Deleted Photoshop profile at appdata
None of them gave any anvil and still using CC version deadlocks the PC.
Another thing is I don't have any problems with CS6 version of Photoshop, and CC Illustrator(26.3.1) also runs just fine. Prime95 and furmark also can be run without any problem and I don't experience any other system problem otherwise.
Can anyone help me with this?
System Info is in the attachment.
Search other threads on here about NVIDIA. Your situation sounds similar. Some people posting can't use any version of Photoshop right now.
Problem is that deadlock still happens even after GPU processing is turned off. If it's a driver or GPU compatibility issue then turning off gpu in the photoshop settings should've resolved it.
Currently Photoshop has been reverted to default, but usually I do use Photoshop with floating windows and most of the time projects do contain some forms of text so I think yes. Did CC changed the way handles with its fonts and texts?
Ok, I have cleared out the font cache and opened the project that doesn’t contain any text and the issue still occurs. First time Windows deadlocked upon launching Photoshop, the second time I deleted 22.5.8 and downloaded 23.4.1 instead, it ran. So I turned off GPU processing and adjusted memory to 60%. Opened up a photoshop document file that didn't have any text and Windows deadlocked as soon as I hover over the menu bar for drop menu.
@Reonasa , and I'm seeing at least one other person noting issues with floating windows AND with text, and the problem occurs when the GPU is turned off, then back on; trying to establish if this is your case or not. Thanks for the help.
@Mark.Dahm Menu is from the top menubar(toolbar?) where text like File, Edit, Image, etc... can be found. I turn on the GPU processing again. The program itself did launch without locking, though I didn’t load any documents yet since that’s when the deadlock starts to happen.
@Mark.DahmOK, It seems iGPU in the CPU indeed causing the deadlock. Disabled iGPU in the bios and so far no deadlock is happening other then random program crash here and there(which is fine for now). I seriously don't know why in the earth iGPU is acting up even if use gpu setting is turned off let alone noting is even connected to it, and CS6 version of Photoshop was not triggering the deadlock. Still thank you for the help I really appreciate it.
@Reonasa , Ah, sorry for not catching that. That integrated GPU is from 2013, and a lot has changed over the last 8 years; not surprising at all that the drivers for that hardware are probably very old, and not able to work well with modern PC standards. Good call to make it go away in device manager.
Thanks for getting back to me; I was still looking for the next rock to turn over.
If you are still experiencing some crashing, you may want to try turning off Camera Raw's GPU settings to see if that has an impact (which are separate from Photoshop; you can access under Edit > Camera Raw:
