Hori Fightstick VX not being recognized. Help

So pretty much I have a Hori Fighstick VX, which has an xbox 360 controller plugin. It works perfectly fine on my windows 7 desktop but I recently got a new laptop which cannot recognize it and I don’t understand why. It was just plug and play for the desktop.
I downloaded xbox 360 controller drivers and updated my chipset and all kinds of things and I still can’t figure it out.
It’s just registered as “Unspecified fighting stick vx”

Anyone got any ideas? I think I saw a post somewhere say they were having problems with intel chipsets and theirs but it’s not really an issue I hear about much so I don’t know.

Does the player identification lights flash when you bend or adjust the USB cable?
