Headset disabled Keyboard & Mouse when I plug it in

Level 2

I'm having issues setting up my Oculus Rift headset. 

As soon as I run through the Oculus setup software, it gets to the point where it's checking everything has been plugged in, then it disables my mouse and keyboard briefly. This will start of cycle of disable and enable that won't stop unless I pull the USB socket connected to the Headset out. I have 2 Oculus Rift headsets (that work perfectly fine on other devices) and I get the same issue.
I've made sure the PC is updated, has the latest GPU drivers, etc. Still nothing. Any ideas?

My Setup
Win 10 Pro - 64 Bit
Intel i9 10900X CPU

128Gb RAM

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super GPU

It could be power draw issue.  Do you have a powered usb hub,  i would try plugging a few things into that and plugging that into your computer.


Also i would match up usb connections keyboard and mouse to usb 2.0 ports, headset on usb type 3.0 etc.
