Default Help! Nexus5!

im trying to unlock my bootloader but i cant!
the drivers are installed but when my device is in that mode from pressing volume botton down and power button the pc doesnt recognizes it!
i checked a few many times and its just telling me the the latest drivers are installed..

You should install drivers 2 times..
Once when it is booted..
And again when it is in fastboot mode..
Since mode changes, your pc recognizes your device as new one.
So install drivers again after connecting in fastboot mode..

You have to install the drivers manually. You can do this by downloading the drivers in the SDK manager and installing them in the device manager.

DONATE TO ME
This may be just me but its a good plan to make sure your pc can see your device when developer Mode is enabled before you go into fastboot this will make sure all the drivers are in order, Not sure if this makes a difference but i also make sure when enabling Developer mode that MTP and Camera Are both unchecked as it can mix up the drivers on my system anyway
