APM 2.6 Not Recognized in Win 10?

Alright so I’m definitely new to apm which could be part of the issue, but I cant seem to get my laptop to recognize my apm 2.6. I’ve tried different usb ports as well as different usb cables. I’ve checked the device manager and it’s not recognized at all, so obviously it’s not listed in the comm port of MissionPlanner. I do however get a flashing red/blue led for the first 2-3 seconds when I plug it in, then it turns to just flashing red. Meanwhile there is a green LED also glowing. Any help would be appreciated.
