Windows 7: Error: LogonUI.exe No Disk in Drive...

Error: LogonUI.exe No Disk in Drive...

Yesterday I upgraded from Windows XP 32-bit to Windows 7 64-bit performing a clean install. When I hit CTRL + ALT + DEL to bring up the Task Manager, I get the following error:

LogonUI.exe - No Disk
There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive
\Device\Harddisk5\DR5

I also get the error when I try to logoff or re-boot or switch users.
Does anyone know what is causing this or how to fix it?
Thanks for looking.

Error: LogonUI.exe No Disk in Drive...

I have the same problem. I just purchased a new Dell desktop computer and used the Easy Transfer process to copy my old computer's files and user profile to a WD external hard-drive, and then to my new computer. Now when I boot up, shut down, or hit CTRL+ALT+DEL to launch the task manager, I get:

LogonUI.exe - No Disk
There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive
\Device\Harddisk3\DR3

I can click "continue" twice and the system will continue on and do whatever task I've selected, but its annoying.

In addition, when I leave the computer on for a while and then return after a few hours, I can't get the computer to respond. I have to do a hard shut down and then reboot. I'm guessing that these issues are related but I don't know.

Any suggestions? I tried creating a new profile and was able to launch that profile without seeing the error message (suggesting perhaps my profile is corrupt) but I saw the error message when shutting down the computer from that profile.

Please help!!!

After a bunch of research, I found out that it was my external hard drive that caused the error. I actually used an internal hard drive in a docking station. I used that to transfer my files. If the drive is not turned on I don't get the error.

The other error you are describing is caused by your system to go into hibernation mode after a period of not being used. I stumbled across an article about this researching my original problem. It tends to happen if you have a very large hard drive. There is something about that the computer times out when trying to wake up. Check Microsoft's website. Try searching for "computer won't wake up after going into hibernation" or something like that. There is a fix for this problem.

Fix

I kept having this problem "Please insert a disk into drive\Device\Harddisk5\DR5"

and here is how I fixed it in windows 7.
[1] - Control panel
[2] - Administrative Tools
[3] - Computer Management
[4] - Disk Management
[5] - Go down the list and see if this is a drive that is not actually there. In other words it could be a placement for a drive that is not actually in your computer. I right clicked on the left side of drive 5 (DR5 was the drive in question) Then left clicked on properties. Then the driver tab, then disable. This took the empty placement out of the system and the problem went away.
Hope this works for you.

Denn Hi and welcome to Seven Forums

Thank you for posting your proposed fix. The OP in this thread probably has the problem fixed by now because the thread was from March.

Just an FYI, this fix would get more attention if it was started in your own new thread.

Thanks...

Thanks JMH,

I had searched for this information all morning and had followed a search to this site and still could not find the answer, so I then decided to figure the problem out for myself. When I did I wanted to post it just in case it might help someone else.

Same problem with different hardware

Thanks for your assistance in resolving this problem for me, also. I have a Windows 7 Ulimate 64-bit system and was getting this error everytime I rebooted or pressed CTL-ALT-DEL. The issue was that I have an HP C6180 All-In-One printer that has memory stick slots that look like a disk drive to Windows 7. I don't use them very often and the error bothered me for over 6 months!

Disabling the driver for the disk fixed the problem and actually speeded up quite a few other things on my system.
