Hy guys,

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!

Update: 

I was prompted with a windows update and after the update finished rift S work like normal.

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.


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.

I also have that update -  it must have come out late today (UK)

does it fix issues for other people????
