I appreciate you following this problem, I don understand how is not a major subject for Oculus. Unfortunatelly, latelly this has become worse. Before, I could fix it by re plugging everything, now is completely bricked. Oculus Waranty will not cover me since I´m not within the list of countries they support.

Oculus sent me a new cable and it fixed the issue.

Unfortunately a month later I have a problem with a dark screen even though everything on the oculus app says it is connected and functioning.

I genuinely love VR but HATE oculus. It’s such a shame we have to deal with so much nonsense in this space.

How have people gotten USB PCI cards to work with the Rift S? When I tried Windows wouldn’t load the USBHUB3.SYS driver that the Rift S requires to the PCI card. After half an hour chatting with a Windows tech advisor last year I discovered that the USBHUB3.SYS driver that the Rift S USB Hub requires is limited to only USB 3.0 onboard the motherboards and won’t work for USB 3.0 PCI cards which means the Rift S will only work if plugged into a 3.0 port on the motherboard.

I was using a 2010 Mac Pro Bootcamp loaded with Windows 10. I upgraded the graphics card and cpu to Rift S specs installed a USB 3.0 PCI card and got the software up and running fine but the software refused to detect the Rift S as connected even though the goggles showed up in the display system setting. In the Device Manager there was an error icon on the Rift S USB Hub. Oculus support was absolutely useless. I kept sending them proof the problems is with their software requiring the use of the Windows driver USBHUB3.SYS which the Windows tech told me that Windows will only load that driver for onboard USB 3.0 ports and that it wouldn’t work for PCI cards. Oculus support didn’t want to hear it.

Hi, thank you so much for you post. I think the answer from reddit has been deleted and unfortunately I cannot finder the proper answer for this obnoxious issue. Do you think you could tell me what the solution actually was?

Many thanks,

Fernando

I am also having this problem. Hopefully we can find an answer.

Hello. PoringOP here…. The solution appears to not work anymore, as I kept getting many messages asking me for additional help, wherease originally, many people said it worked.

Someone quoted the tutorial later down in the comments if you still want to give it a try, but I wouldnt hold my breath. x3

BTW – boycott oculus anyway.

Jose Antunes

Hi PoringOP. When i wrote the article I noted it was a temporary solution, so people should gro from there. But I understand people just want to find a solution, even now, 9 months since the problem started. My Oculus Rift S continues to not be a reliable piece of hardware, and while I can manage to get it working again, many people will just not be able to do so… and should not have to.

Anyways, with Facebook’s recent announcement that you need a FB account for your Oculus VR headset, I am done, and I am even more glad I ordered two HP Reverb G2. I just hope developers decide to produce their titles for more than what is starting to look like “Zuckberg’s VR”.

hello guys i bought the rift s today same issue no display port trying lot of things nothing i dont find the 1.43 version found this answer on reddit to rollback , i’m desperate..

It feels like rift s is purposely sabotaging the platform. I had nextvr one day, then not the next. VR chat rooms worked as they should, now nothing in it seems to work. I bought Everyday Golf VR 2 years ago and watched as playstation golf came with a weighted club the following week, I still can’t get that accessory for the rift. So, no accessories, no live sports, no movies. I talk to support and they gave me the runaround for a month getting me to update this update that instead of just saying nextvr isn’t available for the rifts now. It seems the quest standalone 64 bit computer is able to receive a signal that my multi thousand dollar systems just can’t. I’m calling bullshit.

I have this same problem everyday. So far my only work around is to delete the device in oculus software and then add the device again and go through the stupid VR health and safety video… then recreate my guardian to play.

Okay so, I did this back a few months ago, and it all worked out. but a few days ago i had to uninstall oculus and now i cant re-download it because of the blocking updating step. I don’t remember what was used to block oculus so now im stuck not being able to use it at all and install it… Think you could help?
