My Monitor Blacks Out

Sep 17, 2013 9:29 PM

In a file with several layers, my monitor temporarily blacks out when adjusting colors in a Selective Color adjustment layer.  Is there a solution?

 

I changed the Advanced Graphics Processor Settings to "Normal" from "Advanced."  Seems better but am I losing performance?

    I am using ATI Radeon video driver version 12.104.0.0

     

    I have found that not all drivers are equal and some will crash your computer. In fact, this version will create a blue screen if you don't change the registry settings manually to allow multiple apps using the driver. HP has instructions on how to alter the registry. I do not know if this issue is HP only, ATI only or affects everyone using that driver.

     

    I was going to make a joke when i read your subject line.  I wanted to tell you yes it is an easy fix, just take its bottle away. No more black outs. Wahaha...

    But, I figure you needed a bit more help, so...
