After waking computer up, everything disappears sometimes

Hello,
Occasionally, after I wake up my computer from Sleep, it has a problem. All the icons, windows, and taskbar are gone. The wallpaper and my mouse pointer show up, but nothing else. I can right click just fine. If I press Ctrl+alt+Del, the screen goes black and only my mouse is there. What's the solultion?

You might want to wait until you sort out the BSOD issue.

If you want to try some things:
Replace your wallpaper with a solid color just as a test.

If the problem still happens, remove the video drivers, restart and re-install them.

If the problem still happens, remove the video drivers, restart and re-install an older version.

If using a solid color fixes the issue, change the image to a jpg (if it is bmp).

Hard drive spins down and then disappears from the computer
One of my drives, a Western Digital 1TB Black, will just spin itself down and disconnect from the PC. If I reboot, it will be there but then it will go away. It is Disk 2 when it still shows up, the screenshot was taken a few minutes ago since I don't feel like rebooting at the moment.
