Default One V (Virgin) USB not recognized. Help.

Hey Guys.

I have had HTC devices all my life, but this one has caused me nothing put problems. I bought one from Walmart as the pay-as-you-go from Virgin mobile for my daughter. She has since gotten an iPhone and I tried my hand at rooting, which went fine, but installing a ROM won't take. I know I need to flash the boot .img after I install the ROM, but my desktop (running Windows 7), nor my laptop (Windows 8) will recognize this device. I have searched high & low for the drivers, but I am not sure if the ones I am installing are definitively for the One V.

Installing HTC Sync did nothing, I can boot into TWRP but I can't get adb to recognize it. Is there any other way to restore it, either to factory or a workable ROM? I wanna give it to my mother-in-law, but it won't boot past the red development only writing.

I have done everything to my HTC One w/o issues, but this device is a PITA!!

Any ideas?

Thx.

I finally got it to boot fastbootusb, but nothing will flash via cmd prompt. I keep getting "command write failed, unknown error".

I have never had this happen before. I even tried grabbing the stock recovery from the RUU and it still wont flash. Could my HBOOT be too old or something?

No...It shows up under adb devices.

I did finally get it to boot though. I knew there was already a boot image from before, it was just a matter of finding which ROM it belonged too. After a few hours of flashing ROMs, I found the one.

I still don't understand it though. I wanted to flash the 4.4 Kitkat ROM, but it won't take. It sux.
