Many possiblities with non-working roaming profiles. Incorrect rights, bad path, etc. Check the event logs. There should be more information that's directs us to why the roaming profile couldn't be loaded. Please post any user profile related event entries.

Access denied, that could be a bad profile path, wrong rights on the file share, or wrong rights on the user's roaming profile folder on the server.

1. Check the path for the user's roaming profile location that is stored in Active Directory. Make sure the server, file share, and path are correct and valid.
2. Make sure the profile file share has at least modify rights for this user (or the users group).
3. Check the rights on the users profile folder. It should have at administrator, <username>, and system. All should have full control to the folder.
4. The ownership of the folder and files should be <username>
