Launchkey 25 mkII not recognized


I recently bought a Launchkey 25 mkII and it worked perfectly with FLStudio 12 on my sister's computer (win 10 btw), but when I tried to plug it into my computer (win7), it says "Unknown Device" (with an exclamation mark in the device menu in windows). I've already installed all the drivers and firmwares I found on the internet but it still doesn't work. (It doesn't appear in the MIDI menu of FlStudio too...)

I've already tried other USB ports (3.0 and 2.0).
