Black screen but movement is detected with Oculus Rift

Hey,
I recently switched to Windows 10 from Windows 7 and since then my Oculus won't work.
When I start up Beat Saber, for exemple, I can see the movement of the Rift on the Monitor but the Screen inside the rift is black(not 100% black, more like dark grey, it's like it's trying to startupt but it can't). From what I can see the usb work but the HDMI have a problem.

Tried 2 different port on my GTX 970, reinstalled the Oculus program and reinstalled Nvidia drivers but it didn't fix the problem.

Anyone got an idea of how to fix that?
Thanks in advanceé

    Windows privacy settings, allow apps to access your camera?

    Okay I found the problem and it's the most stupid thing ever. Apparently when you have an accent in your Windows 10 name the Oculus stay black. So I created a new User with NO ACCENTS and launched Oculus and now it work well. Why the F is this even a bug lol.

    i have no accent in my name and i still have been getting this. actully it seems about 2 weeks ago my headset doesnt seem to want to work half the time. i put it on my head and i get a black screen. If i restart oculus then i get the windows program may have crashed should you wait or close. Seems something has broken it latly.
