It crashes Photoshop. So there should be details in the crash report - which might identify if it's a driver bug or something else.
I don’t have any crash reports in my minidump though it is enabled. Can you tell me where I might need to look? As soon as I click on Light effects it opens but immediately a box appears telling me that Photoshop has quit working and that Windows is looking for a solution. Shortly I’m advised to close and Photoshop closes. So far as I can tell, all the other filters work fine. I also had this same problem with the Beta that I used for several weeks. Thanks, Jack

Is this what you were asking about?
You haven't given the version of your graphic card driver. (and it seems to be the root of the crash)
You can find it in help>system info in Photoshop (could you paste the top part?)
12.4 has been reported here as having issues. 12.2 is the most stable, it seems.
Thank you for the info.
