Hi all

I have a relatively new computer, all the correct drivers etc installed, and 4gb RAM...

..yet my computer seems to have trouble handling Photoshop (version CS3 Extended) inparticularly but also had similar problems with Bodypaint and Adobe Professional, though no problems with Maya.

The problem I'm experiencing with Photoshop: whilst initiating a simple command such as 'clone' or even saving a file and trying to change it's file type the program flickers, the tool bar and other command bars disappear for a split second and then come back, the flickering stops once the command has been completed. As you can imagine this makes it's pretty much impossible to work on.

....any ideas what's going on!? much appreciated!

I've been looking into the problem, so far the best I've come up with is that it's a problem with my graphic cards settings, NVIDIA SLI needs to be disabled but I don't know how to do this, I've looked at my NVIDIA Control panel but I don't see anything stating that it's NVIDIA SLI..

.. any help with that?..

... or advice if you think this isn't the cause of the problem?
