I got a new laptop yesterday. Immediately updated the video card drivers.
Then I installed Adobe Creative Cloud + Photoshop (22.3).
Now I have the following problem: I have NOTHING changed, only Photoshop open after install.
When I open a new document and select background color white (color mode RGB) the white is still black.
In the color selection there are also only dark tones. In "View" -> "Color" is also almost everything only black. If I take the eraser and try to erase the layer, everything remains dark.
If I open a PSD / image that is normal on my other computer, the image is also completely dark and rather kept in black tones.
The RAWS it shows me normal in Camera Raw mode!
As soon as I save the image and open it in the folder, it also shows me normal again.
What I have tried:
Install older Photoshop version Disable graphics processor Restart and install Photoshop x times Restart computer Change color profiles and restart Photoshop Give Photoshop lots of RAM, give it less RAM
I can't figure this out, I have NOT had this happen on ANY computer! Even not with those that had significantly worse component!
I have to work now unfortunately, but will try again later to uninstall the entire cloud and reinstall. And test an even older Photoshop if necessary (CS6 or so).
Have you guys had something like this before and can help me if necessary?

That looks like a broken monitor profile. The monitor profile is set in Windows not in Photoshop's colour settings but is used only by colour managed applications such as Photoshop.
1.Restore Photoshop's colour settings to default. You do not say what you changed but making random changed can do more harm than good.
2. Set the correct monitor profile in Windows. Ideally this would be made with a hardware calibration device such as the i1 Display but as a troubleshooting measure, type Color Management' into the Windows search bar and try temporarily setting the monitor profile to sRGB.
