Resource management does not show other home computers or network disks, why?

Thank you for posting your query on HP Community,


Let's try these steps here: 


Step 1: If you have discovered that you are not able to access Resource Monitor on your computer, then the first step towards fixing it will be running Resource Monitor manually. Hit ‘Win + R’ and type in ‘resmon.exe’ to start Resource Monitor. Alternatively, you can navigate to ‘C:\Windows\System32’ and find an executable called ‘resmon.exe’. Click on it.


Step 2: If that did not work out for you, you can further carry out these steps to fix the Resource Monitor. If you are on Windows 7 and if you are using any other theme than Windows 7 Aero theme, switch back to the Aero theme and check Resource Monitor. If this fixed your problem, then you might have to switch back your themes every time you want to use Resource Monitor.


Step 3: The next step in the list is changing your DPI settings. Right-click on the desktop and select ‘Display Settings’.

Under ‘Scale and Layout’ settings try to adjust the percentage and check if the problem with Resource Monitor has revolved or not.


Step 4: Try performing a clean boot on your PC and check if it helps.


From Start, search for msconfig.
Select System Configuration from the search results.
On the Services tab of the System Configuration dialog box, tap or click to select the Hide all Microsoft services check box, and then tap or click Disable all.
On the Startup tab of the System Configuration dialog box, tap or click Open Task Manager.
On the Startup tab in Task Manager, for each startup item, select the item and then click Disable.
Close Task Manager.
On the Startup tab of the System Configuration dialog box, tap or click OK, and then restart the computer.


Step 5: If you have recently discovered this problem with your computer and if you suspect that the problem has emerged after a recent update then you might want to uninstall recent updates from your computer.

Open ‘Settings’ and then go to ‘Update and Security’. In this section click on ‘View installed update history’. Now hit ‘Uninstall Update’ and it will open a list of recent updates that can be uninstalled. Try uninstalling recent updates and check Resource Monitor.


Step 6: Now it is finally time to check if your copy of Windows has some files corrupted or not. I would suggest you to run System File Checker tool and check.


System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.


Press Windows key + X and click Command Prompt (Admin)

Type the following command and press Enter


sfc /scannow


Note: Do not close this Command Prompt window until the verification is 100% complete. The scan results will be shown after this process is finished.


If the file checker did not find any corrupted files or found corrupted files but could not replace them, go to the next step.
If System File Checker finds corrupted files but cannot replace them, use the Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tool. DISM checks the corrupted files; then downloads and replaces the files using Windows Update.
In Windows, open a web browser.
You need to be connected to the Internet to use DISM.
In Windows, search for Command Prompt. In the search results, right-click Command Prompt and select Run as administrator. Then click Yes.
In Command Prompt, type dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth. Make sure to include the space before each / in the command line.
Press Enter and wait while DISM works. This might take several minutes.
If DISM finds corrupted files, it replaces them using Windows Update. If this occurs, after DISM is finished, restart your computer and see if the performance has improved.


If the issue still persists, then I would suggest the next option would be to create a new user account and check if that works.

Follow the instructions to create a new user account: HP PCs - Managing User Accounts and Logins (Windows 10)

The instructions were not helpful. The problem is the SMB1 protocol.

Just wanted to know what are you trying to do here? Are you trying to connect to a server.


What Home devices are you referring to? Could you please share the screenshot of the issue as this will help me in further assisting you.


Waiting for your response!
