I bought a rift and during my initial setup the hdmi cable wouldn't show as connected. I am using a laptop that fully meets the recommended vr settings, except that I have a GeForce GTX 1050 ti, which should still meet the minimum requirements. I have tried everything I could find, and oculus hasn't responded to my support ticket. I can provide more information on my laptop if anyone needs it. At this point I'm afraid I just have a bad cord. Please help!
