pending hardware issues

Level 2

im having pending hardware issues playing echo vr. It starts up and i get to lobby then black screens and says 'i have a pending hardware issue. make sure your headset is plugged in.' i used to play echo vr all the time, about a year ago this started. I think it has to do with oculus  fighting with my pc because its always been glitchy and always giving me a hard time. I just want this rift s to work smooth for once. please help!

My system is upgraded. I'm currently using Windows 10. My USB port always having problems. I've struggled with Oculus from day one. Steam VR games don't run either.
