    I have a Visual Land Prestige 7G, and am running Windows 8 x64 on my PC. I have installed adb, and fastboot (to the best of my knowledge). The tablet shows up in device manager as "Android > Android ADB Interface", but not in This PC (my Computer). I still cannot access it from my PC. I'm about ready to pull my hair out with this thing!

    Welcome to Android Forums.

    I moved this thread to the forum where tables are discussed that don't have a dedicated forum. This is the best place to find other users of this tablet.

    Thanks, but I'm not sure if the problem is due to the model of the tablet, or a more general problem. That's why I posted it where I did. :)

    usually when a general question gets moved, it gets moved to die. not sure why so many get moved, but it does explain why i don't spend much time here anymore.

    not sure where in your settings you should look, but see if usb debugging is checked. on my device it is located in developer's options. if so, uncheck it. another thing you could look for is usb connections, and see that mtf is checked.

    another thing to try is to download an app to your computer, not your device, called usbdeview. with your device NOT plugged into your computer, run the usbdeview and uninstall whatever looks like it might be associated with your device. Then, close that out, plug your device into your computer, and let the device install from scratch its drivers.

    that is what i'd try in order. good luck.
