I have a very strange error. Everytime I switch on my computer and i want to use the Oculus it's saying "You have a pending hardware issue that is preventing you from starting a VR app 1971055" I can open this message and it's telling me that I have no HDMI connection with the Oculus.

The solution is even simple as strange, if I reboot my computer it's working fine.. So everytime i want to use my Oculus I first need to restart my computer... I never had this issue before. More people in here with this same error?

    It is very strange, and although it isn't a 100% solution, I find that simply disconnecting the HDMI and USB cable from the headset fixes the problem as a hotfix. Some people say switching the USB to a 2.0 fixes the issue. I will also try this.

    Start up the Oculus client and then click on Devices, check if your HMD and sensors are all showing as connected.

    Solution...Your headset is unplugged or not plugged in entirely under the mask, the mask bid is removable and there is a connection there that is not making contact.

    I am having the same error.  I unplugged and replugged all chords attached to the headset and that did not resolve the issue.  It was working well yesterday and the problem didnt arise until I installed the latest Oculus update.  Not sure if it's related or not?  I restarted my computer and that still did not resolve the issue.  I am able to use the virtual desktop just fine, but any app (including oculus home) will not open.

    Same here. Tried everything, still same error... May be due to the latest update. Oculus Rift Support, anyone?
