Lightroom: My images are in Lightroom but they are all grey. Why?

Hi, After the last Lightroom update i can no longer see my images in the program...every image is grey. The program still registers that there are images, but i cannot see the images. Why? I really need this program to work!! I have tried everything I can..maybe the update no longer supports my camera files??? Please can any one fix this problem? It was working fine before the last update!

Hello Ben,
Before I do this, here is a bit more info. When I go in File, Open Recent, I have 3 catalog.Ircat. 2 have nothing in them, one only has my 2K new pics and grey numbered thumbnails instead of my other 56K pics. There is a question mark in the top right corner of all the missing files.
All this started when I decided to save my NEW pics under a new catalogue. Am I just looking under the wrong cat? Or should I proceed with your direction as noted above?
Thanks....
Fred

Hi Fred,

If there is a question mark on the thumbnails, then the steps I suggest above won't help. The question mark means that Lightroom cannot find those files on disc. This means that the files were moved on disc, or deleted (outside of Lightroom), and now Lightroom doesn't know where they are.

You can click on the question mark and Lightroom will ask you if you want to locate the missing file. You can then tell Lightroom where the file is now located. Lightroom will automatically find other missing files that are nearby.

Thanks,
Ben

photos are appearing as grey rectangles. I recently downloaded Lightroom 5 CC and everything was working fine for a couple of days before I imported some more photos and everything went grey?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled thumbnails grey in LR CC 2015.10 [ 1111918 ].

Hi Folks, I'm using a Dell precision with NVIDA K1100 and LR CC 2015.10.
since yesterday after doing all the update work starting with the graphics Driver to solve GPU deactivated issue I'm done now BUT thumbnails and secondary preview window are Grey respectivly black. And YES Grafics Driver is higher than 374 actually 377.11
Im using three Screens Primary is the Dell built in showing the Problem. Secondary is an EIZO CS240 via Displayport showing also the issue and tertiary is an old ACER AL1951 conneted by HDMI here everything works fine. Prior to all the updates it worked fine on all Screens just the GPU issue was killing my nerves. Also disconnecting addtional Screens does not cure the Problem. I'm out of ideas now looking for help.
