Hey there MonsFruitSack! We're here to help iron out any Link issues you're experiencing. Here are some things you can try:

  • Ensure you're plugging into a USB C port.
  • Ensure your GPU and Oculus drivers are up to date.
  • Repair the Oculus PC app by following THESE instructions.
  • Confirm your USB power settings by following these instructions:
    • Open Device Manager.
    • Locate your USB ports - Expand the universal serial bus controller section at the bottom of the list. Look for the "USB 3.0/3.1/3.10 eXtensible" items.
    • Right click and select Properties.
    • Navigate to Power Management.
    • Ensure that the options to save power are deselected.
      • Not all of these listings will have these Power Management options, so we can skip and move onto the next item in the list until completed.
  • Check for Selective Suspending by following these instructions:
    • Right-click Start
    • Click Power Options
    • Click Additional Power Settings
    • Click Change plan settings
    • Click Change Advanced Power Settings
    • Find USB Settings
    • Make sure that Selective Suspend Setting is set to Disabled, and not Enabled.
