Windows 7: Can't access my win7 ultimate

Triple boot: WinXP Pro + Win7 Ultimate + Win10 Ultimate
 
 

Yes, I did run chkdsk and my HD passsed all tests. In addition, my system is a multi-boot system, win10, win7 and xp. All three OSs share the same disk, even though are in separate partitions. Both win10 and xp' work smoothly.
Isn't it an indication that my HD is still functioning as expected.

Is there any way I can access win7 from eother win10 or xp, and try some testing, or even curing?

I'm quite sure that you have a corrupted or inappropriate driver.
Once, on my computer, Windows Update installed a new LAN driver and it wasn't the appropriate driver and LAN stopped to work.
Look at Windows Update history to see if it had installed any new hardware driver .

I"m going to try, but wonder if Safe Mode allows deinstalling a driver.
Anyway, I can't check it right away since I"m now on my win10 OS.

It isn't under Windows Update.
Launch Control Panel - Programs and Features.
On the left side you going to see Installed Updates.
Under Installed updates, select "Installed on" tab, look for latest hardware installation.

Thanks, but no, no hardware updates.
All updates but one are from Microsoft, while the only non-MS is for Acrobat (Adobe).

Just read all the posts. From your fist post I can see that you have the recycle bin. If you open it, do you have Explorer?
Right click on the screen. Can you launch Personalize?

Yes, I can see the recycle bin. I can open it and see the listing. Is that what you meant by having explorer?
As to "personalize", what do you mean by this term?
