Headset HDMI is detected but doesn't work

I have been using my oculus for a couple months now and no problems we're had. Until recently when the video in my headset isn't working anymore. I have checked the connection on my headset USB and HDMI and they are connected. I restarted my computer and reinstalled the oculus software as well and nothing has worked so far.

    Have you tried starting a VR game direct?
    Can they start on the Desktop Home?
    If yes then your OculusVR file is running As Admin in Properties/Compatibility box - this can get you more RAM to use but prevents Home VR and mic in games. Uncheck box to work as normal.
    If not and it worked before then check the HMDI connection into the Rift itself. Pull it out and click it back in.
    If not then it could be the Drivers need installed again. "C:\Program Files\Oculus\Support\oculus-drivers\oculus driver.exe"
    If not then it may be a kinked cable so contact [email protected]
