Question [Q] Dead in the water

OK, so I'm not a noob, but I am, apparently a moron. I was trying to flash a ROM and accidentally wiped my entire device. I can't get my PC (Windows 8) to recognize my phone. I have tried installing the drivers multiple times. not sure where to go from here. I've always worked with Samsung so I am a little lost in the LG world. Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

I have TWRP 2.6.3.2 installed and I can get to it, but I have no way to get a ROM onto the phone to flash and no backups. If I could get my phone to be recognized by the PC, I have my TWRP backups on my laptop. Also, yes, I can get to download mode as well, but it is stuck at the window saying not to unplug the cable and it is updating but it never does anything.

If you can get into twrp you can adb sideload a rom or push your backup to your sdcard.

Yah like the post above adb sideload should work I actually just helped somebody and posted instructions and don't think thread is closed...also if your phone won't recognize could also try Koush universal drivers

I have tried that, but it will not read the ROM file.

adb push your backup to sdcard then restore will not work?
