If I have read your question correctly, you are doing everything properly that you should be doing. The only suggestion I have for you, is that your USB cable may be bad. Either try your cable on someone else's computer, or just try someone else's cable. This way you can narrow down if it's a USB port problem on your computer, or a cable problem.

How to send contacts from Note3 to laptop?

Help me how can I do that, I have Dell touch Window8 laptop

Copying contacts from a phone to a computer is always a bit confusing, because there are so many different devices and methods. Your Samsung Galaxy Note3 is no exception to this. Generally people used Samsung Kies to do this, but the new version of Samsung Kies doesn't have this feature. Fortunately there is another great program you can use to get the same functionality.

That program is known as AirDroid. With it, you can wirelessly manage your contacts, share files between your PC and your Note3, manage SMS messages, and many more useful features. If you haven't used this program previously, read our article on How to Wirelessly Manage Your Android from a Web Browser with the AirDroid program for instructions on installing and using this program.
