    Same here. i tried all suggestions and more but nothing works, just white led and sound but only black screen. I opened a support ticket yesterday but they still havent responded. and i'm not seeing much help here on the forum aswell from them? Are they even on this site sometimes?

    Had a 980 gtx this morning. All worked. Fine.

    Upgraded to 2070 later today, now nothing but black screens in the lenses every min or so.

    Going to give the creators update drivers a try...

    Hi mate, I upgraded too and bought myself RTX 2080, I have the latest drivers and Rift S works fine but seen in other threads over last 24 hours people saying they had to revert back to older drivers to get Rift S working.

    The older version of the game ready driver. Doesn't work either!

    Imagine -  I should replace my 2070 with a bloody 980 for it to work!

    hmm, that is very strange mate, have you got the latest version of windows installed? 

    Also I would try different slots in your GPU and not have other things connected like your monitor or old Rift or anything else plugged into HDMI.

    Also try run in admin mode and windows compatibility enabled too.

    And don't use any antivirus or have other software running in background like msi afterburner etc.

    I could not even get past the setup stage of my rift S due to a "graphics driver issue". It says I need to reinstall my graphics driver, and I have many times. I am using a Nvidia GTX 1060 which is enough according to the recommended requirements. Does anyone have a fix to this or is anyone having the same problem? Is there something I'm missing?

    Do you think nvidea will release a patch or more likely oculus will update firmware?

    I'm in contact with support now, will probably need to get a replacement from them, by the looks of it.  :(

    I contacted oculus support at 4 pm yesterday and still no response. Would it be smart to contact Nvidia as well?

    Given that it worked with my 980 but not my 2070 I think it must be driver related.

    It was so great with the 980 - I was loving it. I shouldn't have upgraded to the 2070 : it would still be working now!

    Have tried the above aside from the compatability suggestions which I can't see helping... 

    Maybe I should have gone for the 2080 like you.
