Hi, I'm having connection problems between my PC and my phone.

Each time I connect my Nexus 4 via USB to my PC I get a notification card that says "The USB device wasn't recognize. The last time this device was connected it didn't work and Windows did not recognized it" (Not literal, I'm translating it from spanish).

If I go to device manager, no Nexus or Android device appear, it only appears a new USB device with an exclamation mark in yellow that's called "unkown USB device" and in properties -> device state it says "Windows stopped this device because it had problems. (Code 43)"

So far I've tried checking and unchecking MTP and PTP connection with and without USB debugging.

I'm using Windows 10 in an Acer Aspire V5-561G and I also tried connecting it using an Ubuntu Virtual Machine that detected a pendrive, but no luck with the Nexus.
