    Are you plugging in a Quest via Link Cable or a Rift S (or another headset)? That can make a difference. Not all cards are supported for Oculus Link, even if they are supported by a Rift S.

    GTX 1050 is below minimum spec for both the Rift S and the Quest Link

    Minimum spec for Rift S is GTX 1050Ti (desktop version). A GTX 1050M (laptop version) is slower than a 1050 Desk top version.

    Minimum spec for "Link" is currently GTX1060 6Gb desk top.

    "VR Ready" is a generic term. Oculus have their own, "Oculus Ready". Since you haven't posted your specs, there may be other things that your laptop is missing or under spec.

    Support info................ Rift S         (click on "Oculus Rift S")

    Support info............... Quest/Link

    Dear Oculus, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it", please.

    I just got the download for oculus link and got a PC. My quest keeps saying that I don't meet the minimum requirements. I don't see how that's possible ? graphics card is a 1660ti . Ram is 8gb . My processor is  an AMD ryzen 4000 series. I have not downloaded the quest update , not sure if that matters ? Has anyone had this problem?
