Device Manager Shows Up Empty i.e. Blank Then MMC Error Data Box

Discussion in 'Windows XP' started by Docster, Aug 31, 2010.

    Running Windows XP Sp3 with all updates.
    After a recent boot up problem Device Manager stopped showing data, i.e.
    when open to view devices there is nothing there except a blank page.
    If left sitting for a couple minutes an error message comes up that MMC
    (Microsoft Management Console) has experienced an error.
    Is there any way to reestablish visibility in Device Manager without
    reloading the machine.
    I tried a System Restore roll back and running SFC /scannow without success.
    I really don't want to reload.
    The machine seems to be operating okay otherwise.

    I did not have any success with this fix. It did inspire me to check the
    Microsoft Knowledge base. I was not able to identify any solution there
    either.

    Did you just install SP3?

    Device Manager and Network Connections may be blank after you install
    Windows XP Service Pack 3

    SP3 was installed from a single slip streamed disk, which is currently
    running on two other machines. When initially installed 8 months ago it
    worked fine. I believe it was functioning properly 4-5 months ago.
    This is a new problem.
    I am suspicious of the Norton software currently installed. Actually
    suspicious of Norton at all times. What we are running is Norton System
    Works.

    It appears that Kellys Korner is no more, i.e. it looks like its off line.
