Unhappy [Q] Wont connect to PC through USB

Okay so my Sprint HTC One Max will not connect to my PC - Windows 7 x64. It will however charge while connected but it never prompts that its "installing drivers" when connected. The USB notifications never appear in the notifications bar on my HTC. I've downloaded the latest HTC Sync, uninstalled, re installed, several times. I have enabled and disabled USB debugging several times. Restarted PC and phone several times. The phone is not rooted. Fastboot is not enabled on the phone. My LG G2 connects through MTP with no problems. I've tried all USB ports on my PC.

I'm not sure what else to do. Please help!

You need to install HTC Drivers for Win7 64 prior to plugging in your phone. A quick google search landed me this:
HTC Driver Installer x86 and x64 - Filename: HTCDriver 4.1.0.001.exe Size: 14.81 MB (15528968 bytes).

It shouldn't be too difficult for you to hunt this file down yourself. It is probably a good idea to make sure HTCSync is completely uninstalled from your machine. Once you've installed the driver exe, plug in your phone and wait for it to appear in device manager (I kept device manager open through the entire process). At this point you should see debugging messages on your phone.

I'm not sure what your ultimate goal is but after a handful of headaches, I was able to use the win7 64 machine that I had at my disposal to successfully run the rumrunner tool and ultimately achieve S-Off! Good Luck!

Still no luck. I completely removed HTC Sync and anything HTC related. Installed the HTC Driver Installer 4.1.0.001.exe and connected my phone but still nothing happens.

Did the HTC drivers install correctly?
Driver or not, SOMETHING should happen when you plug your phone into your pc like new hardware notification. Is anything reflected in device manager when you're plugged in? Successful attachment you should see HTC, or HTC phone, or Android phone, or a yellow exclamation point saying no driver or driver incorrectly installed.
Most definitely a Windows issue. Windows PCs are a PITA. No driver headaches with Mac or Linux. Have another machine around you can try it out on?

Yes they installed correctly. I'm not seeing anything appear in the device manager. I also tried it on my wife desktop and I get the same result. I've tried 4 different USB cables that I have laying around the house.
I'm starting to believe it might just be something wrong with this particular phone.

It's seeming like you may have a bit of tinkering around to do. You DO have USB debugging enabled while you're trying to connect right?
Troubleshooting Windows drivers is a pain. Check out this post I stumbled over, may help you out:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2217396

Here's a couple links to newer versions of HTC Drivers in case you want to try them:

Yeah I came across that page as well. I've tried with Debuf off and on.
I came across this page where he seems to be having the same problem, only thing is my device is stock, not rooted, no roms, or backups.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2541464
Anyway I can work off of that?

The only thing I've done to my phone that could of possibly affected it was when I attempted a bootloader unlock from HTCDev.com.
I followed the steps up to step 5 and entered "fastboot oem get_identifier_token" into the cmd and got the message "waiting for device.." which is when I discovered my phone wasnt connecting though USB.
When connected the USB in fastboot it says "FASTBOOT AC" instead of USB

Not sure if something could of happened in between that.
