Are you talking about being able to see a preview of the picture as a thumbnail?  Try the following link, make sure to read all the posts as the second one from the bottom describes the fix:

Did you try taking ownership of the folder they're in, then copying them back?

what method did you use to "reformat" the laptop?
from DVD, clean install, or the reset tot factory settings?
with a clean install you have to install all the drivers also
anyway - check in device manager for errors or problems

and : WHY did you have to reformat it??

if you don't answer the experts, you'll get only minimal help, as you can see from Darr's last post

what we mean is that you should answer the questions the experts ask
posting your info is fine, but in many cases, the experts think that the problem is a different one you think, and therefore ask for more info
without that info, we can't help properly
