Windows 7: No devices or printers showing in Device and printers

No devices or printers showing in Device and printers

I've got an HP 8440p which has a Window 7 32 bit build. It's not showing anything in Devices and printers. I'm unable to get any answer other than rebuild from my fellows techs. I'm hoping someone out there has a better fix.
Thanks...

Hmm, do these devices work properly and do they show in Device Manager?

The printers work fine, I can print documents to them but they don't show up in Devices or printers. It's a head scratcher. I was told to reimage the machine so I've started a new build. I would really like to know how this happened but the work has to flow...

I don't see what reimaging would do. But how about Device Manager. Do they show there?
