I downloaded the new ethereum wallet yesterday. I deleted everything in the folder: chain data, I resynced the whole blockchain aswell.

But now when I open the wallet, my balance shows zero... when I enter it's address on etherchain it shows the right balance... which is larger than zero.

Any help how to resolve this pls?

check to see if your keystore has a txt document inside of it with the corresponding keystore values of your wallet. if there are no keystore values, your account balance will read zero.
