Mine does the same thing now and I have Windows 8, If you go into device manager it now shows as a general Acer device and not a Nexus 5, if you click on properties and then driver you can see it was updated on the 17th, so the driver was updated and it broke connectivity. You can chose roll back driver and it'll show back up as a Nexus 5, but after a few minutes it re auto-updates the driver and it stops working again.
