    Transform tool freezes CS6 / OpenGL never works

    SpiderExpert1 Community Member

      I'm really baffled with this one guys, I've come across hundreds of errors in my time but this just seems impossible.


      What is happening is whenever I use any transform tool in Photoshop it will freeze, the window won't go white like frozen windows normally do in W7 but it'll just sit there being completely unresponsive to clicks. The only way to quit is to go into the task manager. The other notable thing is whenever this happens I can't just restart Photoshop, I have to restart Windows completely! it even screws over other Adobe software, Dreamweaver won't work either once this error has occured.


      Not only that but OpenGL never works anymore either, it's a huge pain. This one is more random, sometimes it'll happen straight away and other times I can use Photoshop for like thirty minutes before OpenGL stops working. This one's obviously less intrusive but I still enjoy having the OpenGL features on and I'm not sure if the issue is linked to the first.


      The only other symptom I can think of is that once the issues start happening (or just before they're about to happen) the cursor will dart very quickly all over the screen. The actual clicks themselves will still happen in the right location but the visual cusor itself will constantly be moving, like half of the time it'll be in its right spot, the other half it'll be in a random position. I've tried unplugging both the tablet and the keyboard/mouse reciever but it still darts everywhere.


      Everything else on the computer works fine, it's just Adobe software playing up.


      I have tried:

      - Adjusting performance options thoroughly

      - Disabling graphic card features

      - Reinstalling CS6

      - Switching to 32 bit CS6

      - Reverting back to CS5/CS3 (it still happens on those ones too)

      - Trying four different versions of video drivers (320.18, 314.22, 310.70, 306.23)

      - Reinstalling Windows 7



      - Gigabyte GV-N56GOC-1GI Overclocked GTX 560 1GB

      - Gigabyte H61M-S2P-B3 LGA1155

      - Kingston 8gb 1333mhz ddr3

      - Intel sandy bridge Quad-Core i52500K 3.3GHz

      - Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate SP1


      It'd mean a great deal to me if anyone is willing to help on this one.
