Oculus Rift S Black screen

Not applicable

I haven't used my oculus rift s in a while, thought it has always been plugged into my pc. 

My device will not show anything at all in the displays, only black screens. I can run games/programs and watch it from the window that is open on the pc monitor. Everything else seems to work fine, the tracking, controllers, head turning works fine. However the screen are just black in the oculus device.


The device installs fine and is all green in Oculus/device menu. The software and device doesn't have a clue it's screens are not working.


- I tried updating windows and gpu drivers to newest.

- I tried updating and installing all C++ packages.

- I tried updating all USB gates in device manager and updating powersettings on the usb's to not turn off.

- I tried reinstalling oculus software and switching display and usb ports around alot of times. I also tried removing everything else than the oculus from the ports.

- I tried completely uninstalling oculus and deleting program files folder and everything oculus related in appdata folder.

- I tried following the guide here:

- I tried running the Oculus/Support/oculus-drivers/oculus-driver.exe file.

- I tried running the device on my laptop but there I had another issue, that would not register the display port was plugged in from the docking station. That would be a whole other issue.


I dont know if its relevant but my computer is a

5950 ryzen

3080ti msi 

Motherboard msi

64gb ram
