Oculus rift HDMI not working (even with a new cable)

let me just make this quick, the cables are plugged in securely and tight on BOTH ends (headset, usb, and HDMI), I updated my drivers, rolled them back, reinstalled them, reinstalled my oculus software, tested it on another computer, tested it with the NEW cable on another computer, tried switching ports, and did literally EVERYTHING THAT EVERY SINGLE ONLINE FORUM ON THE ENTIRE INTERNET RECCOMENDED and STILL NO RESULT.

I payed $50 for a new cable because i was so sure that that was the issue (the cable was even visibly bent).
Please help, I don't want to live the rest of my life with a $400 paperweight.

    Did it work ok on another PC?  If so, maybe a problem with your PC hdmi port.  If not, contact Oculus Support and start a ticket.  Could be that you got a bum cable or maybe there is a problem with your headset.  Who knows?  I hope you manage to get this sorted out soon mate.

    Sorry if i sound rude when saying this; I literally stated that it didn't work on other pcs (or maybe i wasn't specific enough.. i dunno) .

    But yeah, i'm filing a support ticking right now
    thank you for the response though, man.

    have a good one

    It's probably a bad headset. Please speak with us on the ticket to see about getting a replacement. Thanks.
