Oculus Rift keeps crashing

ZaboyZakobyZaboyZakoby Posts: 1
So when I first started using my Oculus rift it was completely fine and then I moved from my old place into an apartment and made sure to keep boxes and put them back neatly. The first few times I launched the software and played games it was fine but then all the sudden it just started freezing then crashing while playing games and the main monitor would freeze and it would shut off my mouse and keyboard. When watching the Oculus devices tab the headset would just disappear and start freezing causing the screen to turn off and on again. So far trying to fix this by myself I have reset my computer, bought a new cord connecting the headset, and I tried using the Accell USB-c VR adapter (which doesn't even register it being there). My drivers ARE up to date and so is windows.

    Same here.  My son plays and within minutes, he shouts to me to help him because the Oculus keeps crashing.
    I have re-installed it and done all the updates.
    Oculus you  need to step up your game... If anybody reads this... DON'T BUY OCULUS.  I heard HIVE from HTC is better and way more stable.
