You could try installing a newer driver for the V2. It is possible an older one got installed, or since it is just a FTDI chip inside it AFAIK, some other program could have a bad FTDI driver installed. I know how to do a manual driver install on Windows 7, but I am not sure how on Windows 8.

The drivers are located here: https://www.efilive.com/additional-downloads
They have one from 2013 and one from 2011. I'd try the newer one first.

I also am leaning toward what Woodster is saying in some ways. It really does have the symptoms of a hardware problem with the laptop. If it was just software, it would behave the same in all USB ports. The fact that only one port even recognizes the V2 makes me suspect the laptop has hardware issues.

Just for your benefit give a look. I know you have already looked.

It might be worth just uninstall and reinstall V8 (you have probably done this too). Otherwise I would have to agree with others and say it is hardware.

One thing that you should do is go into device manager and make sure that Windows isn't shutting USB ports off to save power. This feature started with Win 8

The v2 has no issues with the win 7 laptop, and I use a similar printer cable to connect my dimsport device with out issue on this computer
Okay. Try it with the AC adapter plugged in. Same result?

If so, do you have an external HDD or a flash drive that you could plug into the USB ports to test with? Make sure the external drives are detected by windows and try to transfer a file from your PC to the flash/external HDD. If you have the same results as before as far as connectivity, I'd think that it's time to buy a laptop.

Also, have you ever updated the BIOS on this laptop?
