    Hi there. My computer doesn't recognize my S5 and my S5 does not recognize that it is connected to a computer.

    When I connect via usb nothing happens on the PC. No notification of a new device. It is not listed under "This PC". The phone charges, but I do not get a notification of a USB connection in the notification menu (see image) I tried 3 different ports and still nothing. I also tried this with other laptops and they don't recognize the phone either.

    I checked the status under Developer Options and MTP is checked off (see image). I dialed *#0808# and selected the MTP button and still nothing (see image).

    Any other suggestions on how to get them to communicate?
    Thank you.

    Have you ever had it connected? It sounds like a driver problem. I would suggest you download and install Samsung's Smart Switch. That will install all the proper drivers. Then try connecting your phone and see if your laptop recognizes it.
