Default Can't connect my S3 to computer

I have tried EVERY solution I can find, kies, samsung usb drivers, different computer, different usp port, different usb cable. It will not work. Please someone help me. I get the error on my computer: Unkown device, it can not find the phone..

I have seen MANY people have this problem, how should I fix it?
My Phones: Samsung GT S5660, LG Optimus 2X, iPhone 4 16GB, iPhone 4S 16GB and Samsung Galaxy S3 i9300
My Tablets: iPad 2 16GB, Denver TAC-7018

Unkown device is a driver problem possible due to a damaged usb port or damaged phone .
As you have tried all then its a service repair .

Atleast 1000 people have/had this problem, they all sent it to service repair?

No they all tried the fixes that have been posted multiple times .
You say you tried EVERY solution = no solutions left .

Drivers
USB Port
Mainboard USB connection
Cable .
Different computer .
Dirt in USB port .

What is left is as said usb damaged send to service or replace it yourself .
Firmware faulty factory reset flash stock firmware or send to a service centre .
Phone main-board damage service centre .

You could always ask these many people for an alternative .

I tried with a other USB cable from my brothers S4, it worked with a other USB cable, you don't know nothing. No need for sevice repair.
