Does it show up in device manager? If it shows as unknown device, have you installed the Arduino IDE using the installer? If you used the .zip package, and have never installed the IDE with the installer, you have to point windows to the driver.

Is the cable known good? There is a plague of bad USB cables (power connection is good, but data lines aren't connected) going around Arduino circles. Try a different cable.
