Rift S Crashes Randomly (Freezes, Beeps, Black Screen, Static)

Level 2

Hey there, I've had my Rift S headset for a few years now and now recently whenever I try to do anything in vr it randomly freezes with a loud beep noise and then cuts to black with static, after a bit less than a minute my headset starts working again. I've tried all of my 3.2 ports at the back of my pc and happens when I play any game.

If possible I would like some help, if you need me to I can post my pc specs and/or a log of the last week.





Level 2

Update: I was able to reach the 3.0 port at the front of my pc, doing that allowed me to play for a bit longer before it crashed.
