Hey guys! How are you? I use photoshop on this pc for 3 years, but in these last two weeks, when I try to brush or erase in photoshop, it totally crashes, along with the entire operating system. I couldn't find the error, because I use other adobe programs like after effects, premiere and etc every day and I'm just having this problem with Photoshop. I've already looked at the video card drivers (I have a gtx 1050 ti). can anybody help me?

Photoshop cannot crash the OS, so some other component has to be at fault. 

Does turning off »Use Graphics Processor« in the Performance Preferences (Photoshop > Preferences > Performance > Graphic Processor Settings) and restarting Photoshop have any bearing on the issue?

In addition to @c.pfaffenbichler post. Do you have installed the latest version of you graphic driver?

Do you have install the "Game Ready"- or the "Studio"- driver? 

Please try the Studio Driver 516.59 from 29/6/2022. 

I already use this version with a GTX 1050TI without any problems.

 

You can also try to reset the preferences of Photoshop using the steps described here:

Preferences in Photoshop (adobe.com)

Please backup your settings before resetting the preferences. You can check:

Preferences in Photoshop (adobe.com)

 

Another try is to deactivating the "Native Canvas". Go to Preferences > Technology Previews... and check "Disable Native Canvas" - then restart Photoshop.

Hey guys, how are you, So, I'm using the 516.59 game ready driver. Do you think if I switch to 516.59 studio the problem will stop?
