connection manager device missing

Q: connection manager device missing

I had been using the IE well until yesterday I cannot open any web page. I'm sure the network works fine, because I can receive/send email using outlook. I thought maybe the IE had some problem, so removed the IE 7, downloaded IE 8 using another PC, then installed the IE 8, but it still cannot open any web page. I checked the Network Connections, found "Unavailable - device missing" under MSN Connection manager.

What should I do to solve this problem?

Preferred Solution: connection manager device missing

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I noticed an icon in my "Network Connections" titled as MSN. It states under "type" that it is a connection manager. The strange thing is that it points to something looking like a telephone number (4255555555) and its status is unavailable due to a missing device...

I don't remember doing anything that could install the above connection...Also scanned my machine with Spybot S&D, Malwarebyte's Antimalware and Commodo Defense+ scanner. None of those programs found anything suspicious.

I accidentally started the msn messenger setup wizard (I don't use it - using windows live messenger) but canceled the setup process almost immediately. Could this be related?

Have you people ever came across this thing? Is it something harmless or should I start posting at the security forums???

A:Solved: MSN Connection Manager - device missing

The MSN Connection manager is installed when you start to install MSN Explorer -- Was that the setup wizard you started (has a butterfly icon) rather than MSN Messenger (has an icon of two people)? MSN Explorer is included with XP; MSN Messenger you would have had to download.

The missing device will be displayed if you don't have a dial up modem.

You can right click the Connection Manager and delete it.

To uninstall MSN Explorer, goto Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs. Check if you see MSN there (will be here if updated from the version included with XP).
If not there, click Add/Remove Windows Components, scroll down to MSN Explorer. If checked, uncheck it.

Hi everyone

I have an emachines em350, I installed win7 as a clean install onto a new hard drive.

It's al sweet except the sound and network adapters have not installed. In fact it seems that win7 is declaring they never existed in the first place.

I have retrieved the latest drivers, win7 spits them out stating that the devices are not present. I have tried the older versions using compatibility mode. I have tried install legacy hardware. I have tried to flush them out through command prompt.


The sound 'card' (which I believe to be onboard) is seen by device manager, but refuses to have anything*to do with drivers.

The LAN I also believe is part of the motherboard, but it just won't show at all.

For the love of all that is holy, please help me out if you can or I fear this netbook will be going out the window at a rate of knots.

Thanking you in advance

I have a computer where the DHCP service will not start due to a missing dependent service.  I did some digging and found that the NetBT.sys file was missing, as well as the related Registry keys and the NetBIOS over TCP/IP service in Device Manager.

Hi all,

The "Display adapter" option is missing from my Device Manager. I did
re-install the OEM driver but it didn't help. I am mystified as to how to get it
to show up. I would like to install a new video card and I suspect I must
first resolve this software problem (already tried the card with no luck).

I had made some tweaks to WinXP some months ago in an effort to optimize it.
I don't remember what I did but I suspect that might have something to do
with it. I have looked through Microsoft and HP/Compaq support sites with
no luck. Any info I found seems to talk about using the Display Adapter to
make changes, not how to revive it.

My stock video drivers are loaded and working. Again, I just don't know how
to get Display Adapter to re-appear (and working) in Device Manager.

I ran a diagnostic app called AIDA32. Here are screen grabs of my:

* Windows Devices
* Physical Devices
* Device Resources
* Windows Video

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can fix this issue? Any and all
suggestions are appreciated.

My System Specs:
* WinXP Home Ed, SP2 installed
* System: Compaq Presario SR1030NX
* Processor: AMD Athlon XP 3000+
* Processor Speed: 2166 MHz
* BIOS: KM400 / 3.03
* RAM: 512 MB

There can be various causes/solutions for this, so start by checking the most common.No Items Appear in the Device Manager List When You Open ItDevice Manager empty or blank in Windows?Device Manager malfunctions after you install Windows XP SP 2Some solutions may involve making changes in the registry. Always back up your registry before making any changes. If you are not familiar with working in the registry, then you should NOT attempt to make any changes on your own. Improper changes to the registry could adversely affect your computer and render it inoperable.

Sounds like you may have some services disabled or set to manual that should be starting with the machine. See if "Network Connections", "Shell Hardware Detection", and "Plug and Play" services are running and configured correctly.

I downloaded the Norton removal tool from the Symantec website.
Followed the directions and restarted my computer.
It wouldn't start and I had to reboot it couple of times before it worked.
Something strange had happened, none of my devices were showing up. I checked "Device Manager" and was shocked to find nothing in the box! Every single device had disappeared!
This is why I couldn't connect or play any sounds, or do anything.
I then tried transferring my data (all my storys, poems etc) to my CD writer. But the computer didn't recognise that either.
So I rebuilt my "old" computer and connected to the internet.
And here I am!
Very angry!
I tried ringing Symantec, but got stupid answering machine that wasn't much help. I emailed them instead and they replied that "I" must have downloaded a piece of software that wasn't compatible to Norton.
I have just sent off another email, but as it contains strong langauge that I'd rather not repeat it on here.
So now I'm stuck. I can't remove my data from my computer, Wish I had "backed up" more often, but then I didn't think "Norton" would crash my pc. Used "Norton" on Windows 98 few years ago and had no problems.
Now I have completely lost faith in Norton and will never use them again.

A:Missing Device Manager

The easiest way to recover the data is to physically remove the hard drive that's in the affected computer and connect it to another computer as a slave drive (make sure you reset the jumper as per the diagram on the hard drive).

You should then be able to move the data to either that computer's hard drive, an external drive, cds or dvds, etc.

Once saving your data completed, reinstall your original hard drive as master in your computer, (setting the jumper again accordingly) reformat and reinstall XP if you have the Windows XP installation cd or use a Restore cd that may have come with the computer.

If you did not get any disks with your computer when it was new, there may be a restore partition which is accessed before Windows starts.
Boot the computer and look for instructions on the bottom of the screen - again - BEFORE Windows starts.

I need help please,

I'm not sure when this originally occurred, but I'm missing the IDE/ATA Controllers section in Device Manager. They are currently listed in the Unknown section.

A few months ago I replaced the power supply on my 3 year old HP m7183c PC and about a month ago had to reinstall Windows (XP MCE SP2) due to problems caused by a Windows update.

I only just noticed that the IDE/ATA Controllers were listed under Unknown. It isn't causing any problems that I'm aware of... unless some issues I'm having with multiple external drives is related to this.

I've not been able to find anything relating to this and wonder if it's possible that I connected the cables incorrectly when I replaced the power supply. I imagine doing so would result in more serious problems than just relocating the devices to Unknown, but this is out of my range of experience. Possibly missing drivers is causing this???

I would appreciate any thoughts and advice anyone could offer.

A:the ports (com & lpt) on device manager are missing

1) Check to see if the device is hidden. For this, click show hidden devices under View, then expand all the nodes under device manager. Uninstall any entries which appear grayed out, then restart. Then try plugging your external device to the computer and see if it works.

2) Make sure that in the BIOS the ports are enabled and set to 'auto'.

3) If that does not work, try installing the drivers for your device manually.

Be sure that the port is enabled in BIOS. Try removing it from Device manager and rebooting for reinstallation.

If BIOS allows it, and the above does not work, try changing the IRQ or memory used by COM1.

In the device manager I have only the Nvidia 9800M drivers and no Intel VGA drivers. I vaguely remember there being Intel VGA drives as well when I revived the computer. I have done a Gateway system restore and the the Device manager has the display adapter listed as Nvidia 9800M with no Intel VGA.

When I try to install Intel VGA UMA from the driver disk it says my computer does not meet the requirements and shuts down the installation program.

Any help would be wonderful.

A:VGA adapter missing in Device Manager

Hi thenerrus,

If you have a display on your laptop, the VGA is working. I seriously doubt you have two different video cards in that lap because they're not usually built that way, unless you had another on installed. The information you provided says you have an Nvidia card as your video adapter, trying to install the Intel drivers and having them fail also says you only have an Nvidia adapter installed.

So, unless you installed another video card or unsure what card you have installed in the laptop, I would suggest you look up your systems specs from the notebook manufacture and see what card is installed on the machine.

Good luck.

Wow, glad to know I'm not the only one with this problem, and I have tried the same things. All cables attached where they should be, and when I boot up they cd rom drive light comes on for a few seconds, and then nothing. I can still open/close the drawer, but that's it.

A:Missing CD drive, not in Device Manager

Again, if the drive doesn't appear in Device Manager, it's not an issue that can be fixed by tinkering with the registry. You need to diagnose why the system doesn't see the drive.

A:Bluetooth Missing from Device Manager

Hi:Below is the link to the product specifications page for your model. http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Pavilion-17-f000-Notebook-PC-series/6936220/model/7242209/doc... It does not come with built in bluetooth networking, or that feature would have been listed along with the 1x1 802.11b/g/n WLAN wireless connectivity specification. There would be two ways to add bluetooth... The hard way...replace the internal Realtek 8188EE wireless card with the Realtek RT8723BE 802.11bgn 1x1 Wi-Fi + BT4.0 Combo Adapter for HP Pavilion 17 Notebook    HP Part # 753077-005. That will require extensive disassembly of the notebook. Consult the service manual...chapter 6 for the wlan card R&R procedures. http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04402649 The easy way...purchase an external usb bluetooth adapter. I use this one for example. https://www.amazon.com/Kinivo-BTD-400-Bluetooth-4-0-USB/dp/B007Q45EF4

The initial problem is when I print to a virtual printer on lpt1, the print out comes out but I get a "document failed to print" message every time.

This problem could be related to the missing "Ports (COM LPT) " in "Device Manager". I have this problem on 2 Dell Vostro 200 desktop.

I tried looking in the bios to enable the PORT - cant find it.

A:[resolved] Device Manager Missing??

I think this is starting to be a bigger problem. I (and others by searching the web) have just been recently hit with this also and no one can seem to find a fix, not even Microsoft yet.

Do you have any other problems like missing connection icons in your Network Conenctions folder (even though the network/internet still works), very slow display of My Compter or any problems with USB devices?

Those are my problems, and for some reason I was also prompted to reactivate Windows because of significant hardware changes, and there weren't any. I am in contact with Microsoft through email support as are others, but right now no one can seem to find a general fix that works. I would first reccomend to you to get updated to Service Pack 2.

I recent upgraded an IBM thinkpad to windows XP service pack 2. Soon after upgrading I noticed some things had stopped working (wireless card, for instance). When I checked on the device manager, I found that nothing was listed. The device manager was completely blank. This sounded exactly like this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/893249

So, I contact microsoft, and I get the hotfix listed. Running the hotfix autoextracts a file called fixccs.exe and another fixccs.pdb. I ran fixccs.exe but it doesn't appear to do anything, and I still have no device manager. Anyone encountered this problem/know what to do with the files provided?

Ok here it goes....

I was playing Bioshock and my computer froze. I got some crazy pink screen and then nothing so I had to do a hard restart. (SUCKED)

So, I turned it back on and noticed my Monitor Drivers were deleted? (ViewSonic 21" VX2025wm) I then of coarse reinstalled and everything seemed to be working nicely.

I started playing Call of Duty 4 and I could see some glitching so I stopped playing and started up my Nvidia System Monitor so I could watch the temp of the Video Card (8800GTXOC BFG). Noticed the temp rise to about 81 degrees C which is normal for the card and it crashed again. So now I'm convinced its the video card. Went to Nvidia Website and DL the newest drivers for the card v180.52. Of coarse I had to reinstall the Monitor drivers as well.

So all that done. I started playing one more time to see the results (Stupid I know) and the same thing happened but this time the Monitor and Sound Card Drivers were deleted. (Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2). So I tried installing the sound card but I get this message (The File 'catc32k.sys' on Creative installer CD-ROM is needed) So I put the disk in and try to reinstall it but nothing. I even tried to manually remove and start over but still nothing.

Now when I try to install my monitor I can't because the disk does not work and I have to manually install it. But I have to click the plug and play monitor option in the Monitor Selection but it is not there. I have unplugged the monitor an... Read more

I am trying to assist an office colleague who had a problem with his home PC.
When he is opening his Device Manager (My Computer --> Properties --> Hardware --> Device Manager)
to ensure all the drivers are properly installed, he got a black windows (similar to DOS windows) which blinks
for two seconds and disappeared. It is not possible to open the Device Manager.

The same occurs when trying to open "Services" (Start --> Run --> Services.MSN) i.e. trying to open the Device
Manager through "Services", but in vain.

He is operating a Windows XP Pro


A:Windows Device Manager missing

What happens when typing...Start/Run...devmgmt.msc ?

Has he tried running chkdsk /r?

Has he tried defragging the boot drive?

Ok my friend started her computer up the other day & she got a windows error for her xp & a screen came up giving her the number to call microsoft to reactivate her xp. She did all of that & the computer then came up fine but she could not hook to the internet. She was getting a modem error. I told her by the sound of it she needed to reinstall her drivers & stuff for the modem or else her modem had died & she needed a new one. She went & got a new one yesterday & so far has been able to load the software for the new modem but the computer can't find the new modem when it searches for it. I went down to try and help her and have discovered that NONE of her devices are even being listed under device manager. Not quite sure what is going on or how to help her. Any one got a clue out there as to what I need to do to help her????
