Photoshop detected an error in your display driver

I've searched the forum but haven't found a solution to my issue with PS 22.4.2.

 

In Preferences->Performance, for the Graphics Processor it lists "Photoshop detected an error in your display driver". I've installed the latest version of the driver for my NVidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti. PS 2021 system requirements list Microsoft DirectX 12 which that card supports. The User Graphics Processor and Advance Settings are greyed out.

 

In LrC 10.3, it shows the graphics card it says "Your system automatically supports basic acceleration" under the NVidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti. text if that means anything.

 

Attached is the system info.

 

Thanks in advance for any help/insight

Thanks @JJMack for both finding the answer and showing me I should have read the system info first. 

I hardly use PS and mostly LrC.

My system is old, and I had issues upgradin to Windows 10, so downgrading to PS 2020 is a better plan than replacing the video driver.
