Your computer doesn't meet the updated minimum specifications...


I've been playing through quest link cable (as well as air link) for over a year on a very outdated desktop: 1050ti, Intel i7 4770 

Suddenly it stopped working a few weeks ago. After 10+ hours I tried every suggestion on the web, multiple quests multiple cables, drivers, uninstall reinstall everything. Well this week I bought a Predator Helios i9 13th gen, 4080 GPU and it's telling me don't meet the system requirements. I've updated GPU drivers and windows updates. This is incredibly frustrating and it seems I'm not the only person experiencing this.

Obviously I checked the minimum requirements before buying this laptop expressly for use with Quest link. This must be a Llama II generated response because the link you sent says the 40 series GPUs ARE SUPPORTED. Can I get a breathing human to set their fleshy eyeballs on the five Meta forum posts with people having the same exact issues without any resolution? I tried the troubleshooting in each of these posts with no success. I shouldn't have to hack out of the Matrix like Neo to get a top of the line gaming laptop to work with your a.

Quest link was working with my desktop prior to a month ago. I used to be able to launch games through steam using the Quest. Now Steam isn't recognizing a headset and the Meta desktop app says my system doesn't meet the updated system requirements.


Hey there, @rumbelstiltskin! We completely understand where you're coming from here, and it's absolutely our top priority to get you back to comfortably PCVR gaming without worries! Thank you for confirming your PC specifications meet those necessary minimum requirements, by the way.

  • Try updating your drivers again directly through your GPU brand website then restart your PC.
  • Update your PCs BIOS if needed.
  • Disable any VPNs or antivirus that could be interfering with the headset's connection.
  • Install the latest Oculus Drivers using these steps:
    1. Close the Meta Quest PC app.
    2. Press the Windows key + R on your keyboard to open the Run command.
    3. Enter C:\Program Files\Oculus\Support\oculus-drivers. (File path may be different per user based on the install location)
    4. Open oculus-driver.
    5. Open the Meta Quest PC app and then try to connect your headset again.
