Currently trying to unlock my bootloader, but cannot get my nexus 6p to determine that it's connected to my PC. I can use adb commands while it's on, but booting it into fastboot mode with the adb command or with the key combination results in 'connect usb data cable'. I have rebooted my phone, my computer, reinstalled ADB, installed the google drivers both manually as well as with the SDK manager and used 4 different cables.

I have also tried all 2 of my usb 2.0 ports as well as all 6 usb 3.0 ports.

Windows plays the sound confirming that a device has been connected.
I am using windows 10.

Here's a screenshot of the device manager:

Edit: Factory resetting the device did not help either. Device Manager

    Have you installed the Google Driver while in phone is booted to bootloader? Those are in your SDK folder location - extras - google - usb_driver. When my N6 is booted to bootloader, Windows 10 shows me the following: i.imgur.com/DOrEyyr.png Commented Feb 11, 2016 at 21:56
