    I had the same issue after rooting. Problem went away after I wiped everything and started over.

    You may not have rooted but I'd try a factory reset, and if that fails, maybe flash the factory image.

    I've never been able to get my PC (Win XP) to recognize my N5 (except to charge it). And I tried every driver/fix I could find. I have to manage my files with Airdroid. It works well.

    The problem here is not the universal ADB driver but getting Windows to install the MTP driver for the N5. I tried a bunch of different things. Finally, I went to update driver and asked for Windows to give me a list of all drivers. It offered the ADB driver of course, but it also offered a driver called something like "composite device" driver. Nothing else had worked, so I clicked on it and let it install. It finally gave me the Nexus 5 with a yellow triangle in the Device Manager. When I did update driver for that, it finally offered me the MTP driver and all has worked since. YMMV
