Default "USB device not recognized", why can't I connect to the computer via USB?

I have tried all the drivers and did all the research I could do. I downloaded Google universal driver, Koush drivers, and LG drivers but I still get a "USB device not recognized" error. I have turned on/turned off USB debug and checked MTP in the setting. One thing to note is that I am not using the original LG USB. Could this be the case? I can't seem to wrap my head around why using a non-OEM cable would prevent the computer from recognizing the phone though. I have tried all of the non-OEM cable I have and none works.

Have anyone had this problem and solved it?

PS. my phone is stock 4.4.2

Check the device manager on your PC. you might need to install some software to have it work.
