Text tool problems

Long story short my text tool works, but when I go to input text (with a white or any color background,) it will flicker the canvas to black for a brief second and completely cover the background. Then it will return to normal. Its like a flash or something and it only happens with the text tool. Any ideas on what can cause this? Thanks in advance.

Check what text tool you're using my first thought

Text tool meaning? Im just using the horizontal text tool and it doesnt matter which font. Even as I type this the canvas will flash with black covering all, then back to normal with the text Ive typed. Just wondering if there is some kind of error in the setup that is making it flicker like this. I did have to reinstall and its been doing this ever since. Thanks for the quick reply btw

So the problem involves more than text tool?

I can see how you could think that, but a few things about that. I have only 2 programs running and looking at task manager confirms that. Plus with said applications running, with any other programs, I dont see any complications like with PS. For example. after effects, sony vegas, or illustrator run fine with no problems. Its very peculiar to say the least
