i just got my oculus rift and tried setting it up for my laptop. when i got to the part where i had to put on the oculus, all i got was a black screen, ive already tried re-downloading windows. tried on another computer and it worked. ive got the latest drivers in everything and windows detects the oculus and the oculus sensors. my pc specs at gtx 980m, i7-4710HQ and16 gb of ram

    You may have a lot of problems or not get it to work with a 980m. Mobile GPUs in general won't work for Rift, and even some of the newer 1050 Ti class laptops don't work either (depending how they are wired). It's best to use a desktop machine for VR. Sorry.
