Homework Help: window XP

Posted by John on Saturday, March 27, 2010 at 7:34pm.

Windows XP Professional can accommodate the addition and removal of many types of devices. The installation of a device results in the installation of drivers and allocation of resources. Subsequent removal of the device can result in this information disappearing from Device Manager. How would this information be retrieved?

a. Run Device Manager, choose View, Show Hidden Devices. The devices in question will now appear in Device Manager.
b. At the command line, type set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 and press enter. A listing of the devices in question, the driver and driver version, and resources assigned will appear in the command window. Pressing CTRL-P will print this information to an attached printer.
c. The information cannot be retrieved once the device has been physically removed.
d. At the command line, type set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 and press enter. Open Device Manager. The devices in question will now be displayed.
e. Run Hardware Troubleshooter, choose View, Show Non-Installed Device Allocations.
