    Are you saying the device manager window is empty? If so, go to CONTROL PANEL - ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS -SERVICES - and set the Plug & Play service to automatic. Reboot.

      device manager still blank

      Try 'control panel > system > hardware > device manager > view > show hidden devices.
      Do you see anything now?
