No devices in device manager.

Hey there,

When I open my device manager it doesn't show any devices. I've searched several websites but can't seem to find a solution for windows 7 Ultimate that works. Someone have a idea on how to solve this problem?

Kind regards,

That's not the solution. There are no devices listed in the devicemanager at all. No diskdrives, no nothing so I can't select a device at all.

Repair Install

I have seen this used in the past along with restore back to the date it was working.
Keep us posted.

Repair install has its own problems, so I don't know if it would work (all tough if a repair install does not work I don't know of any other solution then a full clean install, which I would try to avoid ). The installer hangs on compatibility check. I've run it for about 8 hours but still the compatibility check is not finished. Does somebody have an idea on how to fix this?

Kind regards,

Full clean install did the job. Thanx for the reply's.
