the thumbnail appears in the side bar but the image area is white
Are you referring the the multiple thumbnails in ACR side bar? I don't use LR but I do use Photoshop and as far as I know Photoshop has no sidebar with image thumbnails.

Hi, Sorry, not explaining it very well, the layers panel, with a tiny thumbnail in it, is what I can see, the screen is just white, I can see the image ID at the top of the screen. but cant access the image. frustrating!
Use Photoshop's menu Help>System Info... use its copy button and paste the copy in here. Often when Photoshop is not displaying Imaged correctly is because your the Display adapters Device driver installed is old and outdated. If you using windows be sure the check the manufacture web site for the latest device driver for you adapter. Instal the drivers from that site not any the Windows update offers to install.
I wonder, when I started using this the system brought up a note that my system didn't have 512 vmemory for 3D, I went past that as I wasn't doing any 3D, could that be it? if so, I'm screwed as this system has 256 in v mem, even thought it's got 16gb of ram, I can't afford a new mac to do this with. wonder if I can go back to the version before?
With 256 VRAM you will not have 3D but with the correct drivers you should be able to use PS features that do not require GPU support and 512VRAM. You should be able to see and edit images.
Thanks for your help, I've just disconnected my Color Munki, restarted my computer and it's working again, I wonder if that's been at the root of all the troubles I've been having since I upgraded?
