Cmd code to find out what device is not connecting please?

Hi. Lately I've been getting a sound prompt telling me a device is not connecting. Everything I need seems to be so I can't figure it out.

It's just a bit of a nuisance but I'd like to find out. Is there a command prompt to ask the computer what isn't connecting?

Look in Device Manager. Press Window key + R to open a Run box. Type devmgmt.msc and press Enter.

Probably will not show you anything since the computer can only show you what is connected normally. You can try clicking on View and Show hidden devices, see if that tells you anything.
