Please follow the following steps for the issue " device manager not showing any devices".

Click Start, click Run, type services.msc, and then click OK.
Double-click Plug and Play.

If you receive a Configuration Manager message, click OK.
In the Startup Type list, click Automatic, and then click OK.
Close Services.
Restart the computer... and this will resolve the issue

Have a great day
