Hey Community, 

 

my Monitor is flickering while hovering my mouse over the tool at of Photoshop. Changing from any tool to brush for example - screen flickering couple times. Updates all done (Windows 10 + Adobe) and drivers up to date either. Ideas anyone?

First, try disabling GPU in the preferences (Preformance). Any better?
If not, recalibrate and build a new ICC profile, the old one might be corrupted.
If you are using software/hardware for this task, be sure the software is set to build a matrix not LUT profile, Version 2 not Version 4 profile.

If turning OFF GPU works, it's a GPU bug and you need to contact the manufacturer or find out if there's an updated driver for it.

Hi,

I am experiencing the same problem with the flickering when hovering the mouse over any tool.

I believe all drivers are up-to-date with my grahics card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super. 

I am not exactly sure what ICC is (I searched on Internet in regard to this, but I don't think this applies to my set up, I don't do any printing of images).

I did turn OFF GPU but flickering still continues.

The flickering started with the latest update to my CC Photoshop (22.4.2)

I don't know what I should do in regard to the flickering. Any suggestions? I have in the past called Adobe support, and maybe I should do this if I can't get any suggestions here other than that was posted already.

Thank you.

Kathie

I am updating my previous post.

My computer tech had updated my drivers for my graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super) around the same time as the update (22.4.2) to CC Photoshop. He told me other people using this graphics card were experiencing flickering as well. He removed my "current" driver tonight, and installed an older version. This solved my problem! I no longer have any flickering when I hover the mouse over a tool. 

This perhaps may be of help to anyone else who may be having the same problem as I did.

Regards,

Kathie

Hi,

The problem I had was with the graphics driver. My computer tech had to go back to version 452.06. My problem began with the version 462.59. And a later update (471.11) was bad too. So, for me, no more updating the drivers (since 7/1/2021).

Regards,

Kathie

An update:

 

I began to experience the flickering again. Windows 10 did an update a week or so ago. And even though my tech turned off the updating of the graphics driver, Windows did the  update. Uninstalled the driver and tried to update with the version that I had before. The system didn't allow for this. I had an old monitor that I decided to try (for chuckles and grins). As it turns out, this monitor hooks up with analog VGA as opposed to HDMI. As a side note, when addressing the flickering problem, I did buy a new HDMI cable (which didn't solve the problem). After my tech hooked up the old monitor via VGA, no flickering! So he unhooked my old monitor and hooked up my current HDMI monitor via the VGA connection! Problem solved, strangely enough.

 

Regards to all,

 

Kathie

I had the same problem and I found out that if I go to the "Nvidia control panel" under the "change resolution" menu and I put the refresh rate to 60hz, the problem is solved. Maybe Photoshop doesn't handle well high refresh rate. I have a 165hz refresh rate monitor and an rtx2060 super.

Thank you for your comment. I am not sure if my tech fiddled with refresh rates, but for some reason, I think he may have. I will pass along your comment to him - and I will see if he tried what you did in order to solve my problem. For some reason, I think he did so. But definitely will find out. Thank you again! I am glad you were able to resolve your issue!
