You can view hidden or non present device in device manager:
  1. open the start menu, type 'cmd' and hold Ctrl, Shift and press Enter. This opens the command prompt in administrator mode.
  2. type - 'set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1' and press Enter
  3. type 'devmgmt' and press Enter
  4. Go to View and select Show hidden devices
You will now be able to see all devices that have been installed on your PC even if they are not there.
