Hi, I have a new (December last year) Dell Inspiron 15 5000 gaming laptop.
I had a family member partly pay for a Oculus Rift with the Touch and the Marvel edition. It arrived on Monday.
Beforehand I ran about 8 compatibility tests and they all said compatible.
I spent 5 1/2 hours on Monday night with two friends trying all sorts to get it to work.
The problem is that though the headset had a white light and played audio, the Oculus Rift app wasn't putting that green tick next to HDMI. It did for both sensors and the Headset USB.
Many hours of research and trying everything under the sun, one friend found a video showing someone getting around this issue with a Vive Link Box.
So I got one. Along with another HDMI cable, a Male to Male usb and the power for said box. Cost me £100 from Amazon.
All of this has arrived today and after following the instructions, my computer doesn't recognise the box. No popup to install it.
I am at my wit's end, audio and the white light plus my monitor flickering when I plug it in is so annoying when I see the app just doesn't know it's plugged in.
Can anyone help?
If I don't have this fixed by Tuesday I will refund.
PS- Does anyone know if a WMR or Vive headset would work on my setup? Thanks!
