Why Does My Smoke Do This?

On a completely new blender file, my smoke simulation always gets stuck instead of going up as it should in every tutorial I watch. I am on blender 3.2

I just tried the same thing on a default 3.3 and it works fine. Try the next version.

I just updated so the blender settings are completely reset to default, and the smoke is still doing the same thing

Ok im back to this, does anyone know?

Here’s the simple quick effect constructed o my machine. Give it a try on yours. I see smoke rising up.

PS: You are running the default settings, right? You didn’t try out one of those other options that attempt to emulate other software packages, did you?
