my VR headset is OOOFED

when I first got my VR headset, it worked good, I configured it and the setup went great. I had already bought games so I could play them when i got the headset for example superhot, pavlov and blade and sorcery. Not a single game worked, it was just a black screen. I re-installed the oculus app and now when I try to setup the headset again I can't finish the setup because its just a black screen in my headset. I tried removing the entity, I even tried to turn on the early updates and it didnt work. I also tried to go to setting -> beta and restart the software but that didn't work either and it keeps coming - some functions may not be working right now... 
that notice has been coming up for the last 3 hours. So the problem is that I cant setup the guardian and so on because its just a black screen and i cant play games beacuse its just black. I can hear the audio when the videos play on the setup but i can't see anything. (I havent exposed the lins to sunlight or any liquids btw)

    PC specs to start with ??
    A PC with lots of gadgets inside and a thing to see in 3D that you put on your head.

    Exact same thing happened to me. Never dropped the headset, never exposed it to liquids. (was always careful when sweating and used a headband etc). Worst thing, just built a brand new computer for this because I had a bunch of issues with my previous one (poor tracking, random reboots) which I assumed were because the computer was fairly old (mid-range from 2014). Rift S worked for 1.5 day, then the screen suddenly went black and never turned on again.
