He accidentaly erased the OS and now I am having trouble getting the nexus 4 to stock OS because my windows pc cannot detect the phone. the phone is on TWRP recovery page and there is no OS installed an USB debugging is not enabled

Go to device manager, delete anything that says Android.

Install this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2588979

The things to pay attention to is fastboot and the commands.
