Default Cant connect to laptop?

Trying to connect my LG G2 to my Acer Aspire V laptop and I cant get anything out of it. I've installed the drivers from LG's website, I've tried installing LG pc suite(works via wifi. The phone thinks its connected via usb but the software doesn't see it). I've also tried manually selecting various LG drivers and it still won't come up. My laptop is windows 8. On my windows 7 desktop the first time I plugged it in it came up like a usb drive and connected perfectly to LG Suite.
Any suggestions? I am with bell.
