Rift S setup crashing computer and screen not turning on

edited May 19 in Oculus Rift S and Rift
so I got my RMA rift yesterday and I re-download the oculus software and proceeded to set up my rift s. Sound worked and controllers paired. But when I went to complete set up the screen did not turn on, and then after repeatedly trying new outlets and resetting the cable in my headset my computer crashed! It said system service exception, atikmdag.sys and this happened multiple times. I clean unistalled my video drivers, updated bios, updated port drivers, updated windows, uninsatlled and reinstalled oculus software and still crashed afterwards! But only after I start oculus and plug in my headset. Idk what to do I just got a new one and now I can't use it!

My build

Ryzen 7 2700x 
Vega 64
16GB Ram 
B450-f rog strix gaming motherboard 

My previous rift worked but the screen turned purple after not using it for months and it sat in the original box in my closet. 

I just bought half life alyx and I'm dying to play please help!

    Nope the first one worked, but the image was like purplish/red in the blacks, but that was after not using it after months. Prior too it worked just fine
