display port problem seems unfixable

I'm going to run through the last day of events. My rift s is on and detecting i'm there, yet the display port is not being detected, I have tried seemingly everything, but nothing has worked so far.
List of things I have tried:
1) unplugging the USB and display port, plugging back in the USB, waiting 5 seconds, and then plugging back in the display port.
2) unplugging the headsets cable, and then plugging it back in.
3) Opting for the public test channel 
4) Updating my Oculus drivers, graphics card, and windows version (all were up to date)
5) Restarting Oculus via the beta tab in the settings
6) Restarting my computer DOZENS of times
7) Combining 1, 5 and 6
8) Contacting Oculus support (no answers)
9) Contacting every discord I could find about VR, (no working answers)
10) I even tried praying and crying, but in the morning nothing changed, no surprise there

    the only way i see to fix this is to buy a new cable specifically for the rift s and using that

    The only way to fix this is to sell this broken headset and buy a better one.

    Extremely frustrating.
    I bought a powered USB hub, finally (after all the steps you mentioned) got it to connect, and still sensors wont pick up.
    My family is watching me like an idiot piss about with this thing for too long. It's just infuriating that in this day and age you can't make a plug and play device.
    Feel like I'm back in 2004 playing EA games.

    I had this problem at its absolute worst, I read every guide online, every forum, tried every fix (that didnt require extra hardware) and nothing. My Headset worked fine at first  when I got it in January, or maybe I just didnt notice the crashing yet, but after a month or two I noticed very consistant crashing, sometimes 30 seconds into a game, sometimes 30 minutes into a game. I could basically set my watch to it. Finally, I bought the powered USB hub like everyone had recommended, as every thing seemed to indicate the Oculus headset was simply losing power. A  $25 powered USB hub was the most cost effective fix to try first, and it worked like a charm for me. I have had multiple 8-12 hour sessions of VR with friends and experienced no more issues than usual. Oculus doesnt seem to want to admit that yeah, you might have to go buy more stuff to make the headset work, but there it is.

    I do like the idea of the usb hub however my problem is the display port because my headset has enough power to last me for years. but my headset wont display it, I do have a warantee which i am going to try today, if not then im going to get and try a new cable.

    I know the error says that the problem is the displayport but trust me its the USB port. Lots of people have this problem and it sometimes is fixed by unplugging and replugging in the USB cable without ever doing anything with the displayport cable. Also many people are able to completely fix this issue with a powered USB hub. I know, the error message is misleading and doesn't help you understand what the problem actually is or what the fix should be. My guess is that the error messages are written by the same person that writes their driver update notes. (ex: fixed some bugs.)

    Had this shit
    Update DP firmware (nvidia), not driver, but firmware
    Works pretty well
    You had some issues explain on reddit 
    reddit dot com rift s display port not found fix driver rollback
    None works for me, but i'm in 2.2.0 on headset firmware

    Got this problem too. Have updated DP firmware and no change. Will try a powered USB hub today and report back. So far nothing has worked. Set worked fine for three days since 13 May, but hasn't worked since. Green light stays on during setup for 3-5 seconds on display port then reverts to the searching circle.  When will Oculus acknowledge that this is a major issue and do something?

    Hi.
    First post here but just wanted to say I had this issue today after not using the Rift S for a few days.  USB working but Display Port not being detected (stuck in a cycle).
    Anyway I updated the Oculus app to the Beta and still nothing. But noticed there was a new Nvidia driver. So reluctantly installed that and hey presto. I now have a working Rift S.
    So whilst it may not fix it for everyone, updating the Nvidia driver through Geforce experience solved it straight away for me.
    Hope this helps someone.

    Oculus is not supporting the rift.  $400 is a steep price to pay to learn about scumbags.  let me see if i can find out who they are.

    Brendan Iribe.  "In 2012, he got together with palmer luckey to start a kickstarter campaign for the Oculus Rift VR Headset bringing in about $2.4 million.  Iribe took the position of CEO at the newly founded oculus vr. In December 2016, he stepped down from the role of CEO and decided to lead its newly created PC VR group. As of October 2018, Brendan announced in a Facebook post he would be departing Oculus and its parent company Facebook, with no mentioned future plans."-wikipedia

    Probably stay away from anything this guy touches!

    "On August 7, 2013, Carmack joined oculus vr as their cto. On November 22, 2013, he resigned from id software to work full-time at Oculus VR. Carmack's reason for leaving was because id's parent company zenimax media didn't want to support Oculus Rift.  Carmack's role at both companies later became central to a ZeniMax lawsuit against Oculus parent company facebook, claiming that Oculus stole ZeniMax's virtual reality intellectual property. The trial jury absolved Carmack of liability, though Oculus and other corporate officers were held liable for trademark, copyright, and contract violations.

    In February 2017, Carmack sued ZeniMax, claiming the company had refused to pay him the remaining $22.5 million owed him from their purchase of id Software.  By October 2018, Carmack stated that he and ZeniMax reached an agreement and that "Zenimax has fully satisfied their obligations to me", ending the suit.

    On November 13, 2019, Carmack announced that he is stepping down from the Oculus CTO role to become a "Consulting CTO" in order to allocate more time to his work on artificial general intelligence (AGI)." -wikipedia


    they're all a bunch of scheming assholes. stay away from them.  better that they never existed.  now they're in charge of the fucking world. them and their sort. 


    That Mark Zuckerberg's an asshole goes without saying.  that's where we start!

    Well tried it with a powered USB hub and no luck.  Nvidia have just released a new update and tried it after updating and still the same.  I'm stuck with a Rift S, I just can't connect to my display ports!  Fucking ridiculous.  I know the ports are working and my only recourse now is to try a new pci-e usb board which is arriving tomorrow.  Then list everything I have done on my outstanding ticket with this awful customer service.

    Please, tell me if your PCI-E usb board worked. Crossing fingers for you.

    Well no joy with the powered PCI-e USB. Sometimes Device Manager recognises it as Rift S (with a yellow triangle - bad driver icon), sometimes it doesn't show at all.  Tried the PCE-e directly to mb card and same result display port won't connect.  I'll send all my troublshooting on my ticket and hopefully get a replacement or upgrade to a Oculus Quest. I have an IT expert coming over on the weekend to see if he can get it running and anything happens I'll post it here.

    Thanks for let us know. Sad for you, for us ... How we will do ? Seriously ....

    The chat guy was as helpful as he could be, but had no answer when I mentioned that this has affected loads of customers for over a year and they still don't have a solution. I just hope the new Rift S they send me works.
