I don't think it's your USB port nor your phone, it's the computer and drivers. Try what's in these threads;
http://forum.xda-developers.com/nexu...orage-t2424733
http://forum.xda-developers.com/nexu...t2287768/page2

I did all that and still no connection then I did this:
I opened up device manager and had a portable device < Nexus 4 listed w/a yellow triangle. then in another window I ran the WUG Toolkit and picked root. WUG told tried to work but gave me the error page that said I was not connected or turn on debugging etc. I went back to device manager and had to r/click on my device to bring up properties picked the driver tab and then the update driver choice. Right away, with doing nothing else, an android device populated the list and I went back to WUG clicked ok on the error message, telling it to root my device. Sure as hell after 4 days WUG rooted my device successfully and as it finished I had a message pop up on my taskbar telling me that the Google Nexus 4 drivers had successfully loaded. The root process had rebooted my phone so thats why I got the message, I think.

And now all is good in the hood.

there are no resopnse when I plug in the Nexus. I'm pretty sure that my phone USB port is done, although it can charge.

My device didn't show in the device manager, no Nexus 4, no Yellow triangel.

Your right I missed the "No response" when you plug in. Even at my worst when I plug in the computer tried to & failed to load drivers.

Consider installing Nexus 4 Naked Drivers.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/nexu...naked-t1996051

They'll install/override your current driver configuration and hopefully your computter will detect your phone again.

Have the same problem on my win7 PC. Won't see phone until I enable USB debugging. Laptop and other PCs work fine so I think its a driver issue.

After I replace a new USB Port of my Nexus4, the PC can detect my Phone.
