I have an Acer nitro 5 which I saw in a post somewhere on the forums or website which says it is Oculus ready and I used the software to see if my computer can use the rift and it said I could that it meets the specs but when I'm setting it up it does not detecting the sensors(I have 1 USB 3.0 1 USB c 3.1 and 2 USB 2.0) I tried plugging in the headset to the 3.0 it works then I plugged in the sensors to the 2.0 that didn't work then I plugged the headset into the 2.0 it worked then plug one sensor into the 3.0 and one into the 2.0 no dice then I plugged one sensor into the 3.0 and one into the USB c still does not detect I'm ordering a USB hub for the 3.0(I know hubs are unreliable because of the bottleneck) otherwise I don't know what to do because I really have a $400 piece of plastic. I don't want to return it but I don't really know of any options.

    hi there I have the same but somewhat different issues. 

    The Oculus headset doesn't get set up and the compatibility check tool compares to wrong GPU and CPU types. I have followed the link on Oculus.com ( https://www.oculus.com/rift/oculus-ready-pcs/#pc-offers) to purchase a laptop to connect Oculus Rift headset, however when connected it shows it doesn't meet min requirements but refers to wrong CPU ( Intel i3) and GPU (Nvidia). The model I purchased is AN515-41-F6VS
    NH.Q2UAA.003
    Windows 10 Home
    AMD FX-Series FX-9830P processor Quad-core 3 GHz
    15.6" Full HD (1920 x 1080) 16:9 IPS
    AMD Radeon RX 550 with 4 GB Dedicated Memory
    8 GB, DDR4 SDRAM
    which should be better than min requirements stated at https://support.oculus.com/170128916778795/ ( Graphics Card: AMD Radeon RX 480 or greater, CPU: AMD FX4350 or greater). Wonder how it all can be fixed. Thanks.

    Try booting your PC with both sensors plugged into USB 2.0. Leave them plugged in for a while, too. The system has to set them up and install drivers just like a mouse or keyboard.
