NEXUS 4 Phone USB Connection not recognised - Help!

I recently dropped my Nexus 4 LG Phone and the touch screen is now broken, this is not allowing me to use the phone at all. It is still able to switch on, and receiving messages, etc - it's literally just the screen. Before I send my phone off to get fixed I would like to transfer all my pictures and videos over to my laptop. (I do not have a external memory card - they are all on the internal phone memory) I understand you have to chose USB De-bugging in some cases, but I cannot get on my phone to do so. I have tried simply plugging my phone through the USB onto my laptop, but my Windows 7 isn't even searching for it as a device, not recognising it, meaning there's nothing I can do. I can see it's plugged in to the laptop as the phone starts charging whilst it's in..

I have a Google account which my phone is logged into, so is there a way to reverse copy the images from google instead of my phone to google?

Anyone have any suggestions or will my phone purely have to be wiped?
