Nube needs help

Greetings shed dwellers. I think hints & tips is where need to be but feel free to direct me elsewhere if appropriate.
I have a particular problem and I'm hoping I'm not the first and that there is a fix out there waiting to be discovered. I've acquired an Orion Starshoot Autoguider but cannot get my laptop to "see" it. I've been on to Orion and they're not too much help but I have followed their advice and uninstalled and reinstalled drivers and PHD software (many times). The really odd part is that I tried loading the drivers and PHD on to my desktop computer (windows 7) and "presto", shiny red LED on camera, PHD finds and connects and blurry grey image which changes intensity with light appears on screen. This I think means all the bits are working. However when trying to get laptop (windows8.1) to do the job I get no LED and PHD says "no camera found". The drivers do appear in the list of devices on the laptop and they are definitely in the same "Orion" folder as they are on the desktop. My IT skills are limited but I'm fairly good with a hammer, that option is starting to look really tempting about now.

So here's your chance to save a life (that of my laptop to be clear). Anyone seen this before? What am I missing? How do I sort it out?

All advice gratefully received

Thanks in advance
