To view missing devices, close Device Manager. On the Systems Properties page, click the Advanced Tab. Next, click Environment Variables. When the Environment Variables screen appears, click New in the System Variables box.

You'll then see the New System Variable screen. Enter devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices in the Variable Name field and 1 in the Variable Value field as shown in Figure B. Click OK to save the new variable and OK again to close the Environment Variables screen.
