After About 10 Minutes of Use, My Screen in My Headset Goes Black.

I've been having troubles with my Rift S. After about 10 minutes of use, my screen in my headset goes black, the game freezes on my regular monitor, and the Oculus app can't detect the Rift S display port. And after it detects it again, the headset can't track the controllers, so I go to devise setup, but it says that the sensors on the headset aren't working. To fix this, I have to restart my PC, But then the same issue arises again, and again. I've been trying to fix it but nothing has worked. I've tried using different USB ports, different display ports, updating graphics drivers, updating windows, using the public test channel, but none of these had any effect on the problem. If anyone has fixed this before, please inform me.

    I know the issue, the Rift ITSELF, requires at least 300W power consumption. Bare in mind, the PC has to power two HD Screens. I would go with an 800W arounds. 80Plus Bronze is fine, but if the computer turns off for a moment then back on, then it doesn’t have enough wattage
