Default [Q] Soft bricked D801 unrecognized

Hey everyone I'm quite new to android, and I'm currently stuck in Download Mode after trying and failing to install Twrp
I was previously Rooted, tried to install Twrp via Autorec, however when I ran the app it soft-bricked my phone and put me into Fastboot mode.
I followed http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2476972 method, and got back to Download Mode.
I am currently in the middle of returning to stock through http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2432476 using the .TOT method.
I'm fairly close to repairing it but my only issue is that I cannot get my computer to recognize my phone. Neither in Device management nor adb devices anymore.
Therefore I cannot change the port to COM 41 to flash the .TOT file.
I constantly tried installing drivers for the phone both 3.10 and 3.08 but still no recognition can anybody help?

Some more info about the phone:
it's the D801 variant but its on Wind (Canada) not T-mobile
it was previously Rooted
it did not have any recovery software installed
no roms had been flashed previously.

Try to restore your phone using the official LGMobile Support Tool. Just switch on normally the phone, plug it to your PC and wait for your kdz to be downloaded. Once it done, it should install the kdz by itself. Then factory reset your phone (if needed) as it should ask you some pin/password.
Hope it'll help you as it did for me!
