There is no list of devices in the Devise Manager - I cannot mange this machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • As the user/administrator on this PC I cannot see a list of devices when I call up the device manager. I have had issues trying to load drivers for MajicJack - fails as no audio is found, the installation fails when I plug in my kindle. I have a local disk "Q" that I cannot access on the My Computer page and have no idea what was supposed to be representing unless it is because of the failed attempts to load MajicJack.

  • Empty Device Manager can sometimes be caused because a service has not started. Click the Windows Orb (Start) > All Programs > Administrative Tools > Services > General Tab. Scroll down to and double-click the Plug and Play service and make sure it is set to Automatic and that it is running, click OK, etc. and restart the computer.
