Rift s black screen and static..My Solution

Hi all, bought a rift s on saturday, didn't work when i plugged it in, orange light and black screen etc. took hours to figure out a sorta solution.
I disabled both rift s sound drivers in device manager (right click on start menu) and use computers speakers. 
To use headphones from the headset I only disable the top rift s driver (see attached image). I have to unplug and plug the usb and display port back in every time I turn the computer on and when I change from pc sound and headset with headphones. Don't know if this is any help to anyone but it works for me.

    quick update, rift still working with this method. only usb needs unplugging when changing sound output.
