Hello, I'm having this problem wherein my PC Deadlocks whenever I use photoshop or Premiere Pro. I'm pretty sure it's not a hardware issue since I also experienced this with an older PC of mine with the same windows license.



More details on how it deadlocks:

  • When adjusting the brush tool using shortcuts (alt + left click)
  • When Erasing or adjusting the eraser also using shortcuts (alt + left click)
  • When using selections, eg, magic wand, lasso tool etc.
  • Also experienced deadlocking, while playing Apex Legends since the new update so Im pretty sure, that one was a software issue
  • When pressing caps lock, or any other led function, on my keyboard the indicator does not light up
  • The system needs a hard reset for it to function again
  • Sound plays even when in deadlock but stops after about 2-3 minutes
  • Microphone also wont function

I bought my windows key from third party providers, I'm pretty sure it's a fake one but I only encountered this issue after some 5 years of use.
As for photoshop, Its a shared account between me and my brother and it functions well on his laptop

Edit: I can provide license information on my windows key, just not the key itself
