    Windows 7 Professional: C: Drive not loading. Thumbnails white squares.

    Hi All

    Very new here and a set of matching keywords in Google led me to the discover Sysnet.

    My Win 7 has suddenly started showing a problem: The C: Drive (where Win is installed) won't load at all.
    After the PC boots, I am able to access it for the first time, but after that one time, so much as pressing the back button also leads to a complete freeze (aka the green ribbon of death) .

    I have done numerous chkdsk scans & sfc/scannow's, but in vain. The SFCFix helped me narrow it down to 2 dll issues and it matches the exact criteria of this thread: Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them

    However, in this thread as well, the 2nd issues was never solved, hence I am stuck in the same place. I was able to resolve the first dll issue with the Zip provided there.

    If anyone can please assist, it would be a huge help. My CBS log is attached.

    Re: Windows 7 Professional: C: Drive not loading. Thumbnails white squares.

    Thanks for getting back zcomputerwiz.

    The result of the Zip file shows as successful in the logs, but the problem is still persistent. The folder, or this one particular folder in my C drive - just wont open. Clicking back or on any other folders after that becomes useless as they all become inaccessible. I can courtesy visit my computer after the windows boots but its pretty much no go to the C drive after that.

    The E & F drives are still accessible but the icons is all 3 drives are white squares. Could this be a driver issue? I am out of guesses.

    Attaching the logs as advised.

    Re: Windows 7 Professional: C: Drive not loading. Thumbnails white squares.

    Let's check the SMART stats for your drive.

    GSmartControl
    Follow the instructions below to test your hard drive health with GSmartControl:

    • Download GSmartControl and save it on your Desktop;
    • Extract the content of the GSmartControl .zip archive and execute gsmartcontrol.exe; To extract you can right-click your mouse on the GSmartControl.zip file and select Extract.
    • Identify your drive in the list, and double-click on it to bring up it's window (usually you'll find your drive by it's size or it's brand name);
    • Go in the Perform Tests tab, then select Extended Self-test in the Test type drop-down list and click on Execute (this test can take a few hours to complete);
    • Once the test is over, the results will be displayed at the bottom of the window. Please copy and paste these results in your next reply;
    • Also, go in the Attributes tab and if you have any entries highlighted in red or pink, copy and paste their name in your next reply (or take a screenshot of the GSmartControl window and attach it in your next reply);
    I am usually online 1PM - 4PM CST Monday - Friday.

    Re: Windows 7 Professional: C: Drive not loading. Thumbnails white squares.

    Additionally:
    I have a Nikon D5100 from which I keep transferring a ton of photos - it has an SD card and the transfer i done through USB cable.
    In my last bulk transfer (around 3000 pics) lead to the folders-not-loading problem.
    Today I took some photos again & plugged it to transfer, even the SD card doesn't load anymore.

    Just wanted to let you know in case it helps identify any problem source. Maybe need to uninstall some driver or something? The camera identifies on in Win 7 on its own tho.

    Let's run chkdsk just to make sure there aren't any problems with the filesystem.

    chkdsk /f

    2. When you see Command Prompt on the list, right-click on it and select Run as administrator
    3. When command prompt opens, copy and paste the following commands into it, press enter after each

      chkdsk /f

    4. Reboot
    5. Download ListChkdskResult.exe (by SleepyDude) from the link below:

      https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...kdskResult.exe
    6. Double click on it to run it. It will take a few seconds to scan, then it will open a Notepad window with the log. Copy and paste the contents of this into your next post please!

    Re: Windows 7 Professional: C: Drive not loading. Thumbnails white squares.

    Looks ok.

    Please configure Windows for a clean boot, then check if the symptoms persist.

    Clean Boot

    1. Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Search. Or, if you are using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, and then click Search.
    2. Type msconfig in the search box, and then tap or click msconfig.
    3. On the Services tab of the System Configuration dialog box, tap or click to select the Hide all Microsoft services check box, and then tap or click Disable all.
    4. On the Startup tab of the System Configuration dialog box, tap or click Open Task Manager
    5. On the Startup tab in Task Manager, for each startup item, select the item and then click Disable.
    6. On the Startup tab of the System Configuration dialog box, tap or click OK, and then restart the computer.

    Perfect!

    I disabled it on both tabs - start up & services - as instructed. Scrolling through the C drive & heavily loaded folders smoothly now.

    So, how do I go about turning on the few essentials that I need in these tabs? How do I narrow down the problematic service?
    Do I turn each one up, restart & check? This will need multiple restarts.


    Looking forward to next course of action. Thanks man!

    Excellent. Yes, start turning them back on in batches - about half at a time, if the problem returns you can narrow it down to that half of the list.

    Re: Windows 7 Professional: C: Drive not loading. Thumbnails white squares.

    Hello again zcomputerwiz. Thank you for finally resolving the issue.

    I had once fixed this somehow, before, but your solution directed me exactly in how to do it. The system had relapsed to this behaviour earlier, is when I finally found Sysnative and sought help.

    So I wanted to monitor it for a week before I got to the final verdict. The issue is the system goes back to the old inaccessible folder behaviour on restarts - as in, I may disable all in msconfig & restart, it works fine for that boot. But once I shut it down & reopen it the next time, its back to its old behaviour requiring a mscofig disable routine & restart.

    I have nothing in the startup section other than 'Sticky Notes' - yet I have to do a full disable all routine & restart to make folders accessible. What is this glitch?

    Does this occur only on shut down and startup or also with a restart?

    I've noticed this on Shutdown and whenever I start it next.


    Restarts are usually happening because I do the msconfig > disable all routine so, it's fine for that session.
