Hello there, we hate to hear that you are having some trouble with your Oculus Rift. We're here to help! 🙂 To resolve the black screen issue, please follow these troubleshooting steps:

  • Confirm how the headset is connected, making sure that the headset and primary monitor are connected to the same video card.
  • Try reseating the cable on both the headset side and the side that plugs into the GPU and inspect it for damage:
    • Bent Pins
    • Frays
    • Twists
    • Kinks
    • Etc.
  • Update graphics drivers
  • Reboot the PC
  • Connect the headset to a different USB 3.0 port
  • Try the headset on another computer if possible


Note: When reconnecting to the PC, you should connect the USB cable first, then the display port cable to the dedicated graphics card.

Remove any adapters from the headset.

Laptop: Ensure the port the headset is connected to, is running through the primary GPU and not integrated. This can usually be done through the graphic card settings.
