When you unplug and re-plug your phone, does Windows see ANY new device? Maybe the drivers are not being installed correctly and there is a generic device being shown?
If not, then try another cable, or another USB port and see if that helps. If no luck, try plugging into another PC and see if anything happens. If you get something on the other PC, then you will need to diagnose your PC to continue. If nothing happens, then you might have a bad USB port on your phone.
Try connecting when in normal Powered On mode, and also when in Recovery Mode. See if either mode does anything.
