Rift S won't turn on

I just bought an Oculus Rift S and I followed the setup instructions. Everything worked perfectly, I put on the headset and I could see the vr environment. When I ajusted the depth with the depth adjustment button, the screen turned black. It had completely shut off. I haven't been able to connect it to my pc since then. The leds won't turn on and it is not recognised by the Oculus app anymore. I tried reinstalling the software, restarting my computer, and updating windows and my gpu drivers. Nothing seems to work.

I have a Lenovo Legion Y540-15irh, a gaming laptop that fits the oculus rift s system requirements. Before anyone asks, yes it has a mini DisplayPort connected directly to the gpu, and USB 3.0.

What should I do ?

    It could be a USB power problem, maybe.

    Check your Device Manager and go  Universal Serial Bus controllers, see if there's any Rift S USB Hub on there.
