    Photoshop CS5 crashes whenever I try to save a file

    Sparx1

      Recently, my graphics card stopped working, so I've been forced to use an onboard GPU until I can get the money to buy a new one. The problem though, is that the onboard GPU is VERY old (approximately 6 or so years), and every time I try to save something in photoshop CS5, the program crashes without even giving me an error message. How do I fix this? Does the graphics card even have anything to do with it? I'm using Windows XP by the way.

          By onboard you probably have an old intel chip.  They were never good with PS so yes, that is probably the answer.

           

          You could check by opening the event log and looking for warnings, then expand those.  Look for defaulting module, will probably have something that links it to gpu.

              That would be "look for the Faulting module  But Curt's is exactly "de" right advice nonetheless.

            You should determine exactly what video interface you have on your motherboard. 

             

            It can also be helpful if you'd go into Help - System Info... in Photoshop, Copy, and paste that information here.

              I found an "error" entry in the Event Viewer that mentions Photoshop, but no "warning" ones. Here's what the error entry says:

               

               

              Faulting application photoshop.exe, version 12.1.0.0, faulting module photoshop.exe, version 12.1.0.0, fault address 0x017a9179.

              For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

               

              Also, here's the system info data from photoshop's help > system info:
