So I bought a brand new Rift S a few days ago.
I installed it all fine on my Win 10 gaming PC and had 20-30 minutes of great first user experience of the Rift S.
Soon after, the device wasn't visible any more, so I reinstalled the Oculus software multiple times and it failed to see the device.
I then returned the device to Amazin presuming it was broken.
Unknown to me at the time was that my USB 3.0 ports seem to have failed.
I have done all I can on my system to reinstall the USB 3.0 port drivers, reflashed the PC BIOS etc.... but to no avail.
So my question here on the Oculus forum is:Does the Rift S put a higher demand on a USB port, than other typical PC devices, which may have caused a failure in an (admittedly old) motherboard?
I noticed online is that some people mentioned that USB 3.0 ports are 'the first thing to go' on older motherboards - mines certainly been well used in the 5+ years I've had it, but the timing with the Oculus is very strange.
Anyone with any advice/thoughts would be very much appreciated
(replacement Rift S is arriving today, but I need to understand my PC issue before I will have the chance to use it)
