Try removing (just move them out of the font folder) all but your default system fonts.

I have found that corrupted font files can often cause Photoshop to die.

I'm not sure this will work, try this:
- change your monitor profile to default(super vga) instead of using your monitor driver
-try change your graphic card driver

My friend do this and it works, I don't know he's just lucky or whatever...:)

coolass is right.  I've had the same problem before right after i added new fonts to my system.  I took the new ones out and photoshop worked fine.
