Default Computer doesn't recognize phone

When I plug my phone pc gives me error that it doesn't recognize the USB device. I tried to adb to phone, still no luck. I was on cm11, reinstall rom. I uninstall driver from device manager, and adb drivers. Still can't connect. I was reading on the Internet maybe the device is bad. I had my nexus for 2 years and I never had this problem. Adb and my computer would always recognize my device. The thing that sucks my Verizon contract expired so I cancel my service. I was going to program my phone for page plus, but I can't because my computer won't recognize my phone. I had to activate my Samsung fascinate with page plus, but it sucks cuz I really wanted my nexus, can anyone help?

Could be a few things, but I would try a different USB port on your PC, then I would try a different USB cord, and then try a different PC. If none of those get you a different result then could be the USB/charging port on your device, even though it may charge, it may still have trouble transferring data. I have seen on here where others have changed the port on their device and say it is fairly easy, I have not had to do so yet so I can't say from experience. If you are sure that you have the latest Samsung drivers installed on your PC then I doubt it is software related (not positive). Not sure if I am any help, just throwing out some suggestions. Maybe someone else can add some more definitive answers for you.

If you can work with device over ADB but system doesn't recognize phone, you must have bad drivers or OS. Try linux. I

Well I got my phone to work. I was reading how someone use a toothpick to lift up the tongue inside the USB port. So I use a tiny flathead messed with it for like a hour, kept plugging it to my pc until it connected. Once it did I push all the files I needed with adb to get it ready to get it ready to be program for page plus. Now I got my nexus on page plus, just activated it today, service is pretty good , they only that sucks is their is no 4G, but it feels good to only pay $50 for unlimited voice, text and 2.5 gb of data.
