I just received my replacement Oculus Rift S. The previous one worked fine until it broke and it took Oculus over 2.5 months to send me a replacement.


Unfortunately, the replacement Oculus Rift S does not work for me.


I can detect it on my PC and in the Oculus Rift S app to update the firmware. I can set up the play area boundaries and do the tutorials on the Oculus app but it sometimes crashes when I use the Oculus app for the tutorials.


SteamVR 100% crashes my PC.


I have not overclocked my GPU or CPU. I have used DDU to uninstall my Nvidia drivers and installed the latest one without GeForce Experience. I have done the USB power settings. My Rift S USB connects to the back of my PC instead of a USB hub.


Any ideas for me?

I sent a ticket to request assistance on my oculus rift s, but after 10 days I still haven't had a response. suddenly I had the same problem. my viewer stopped working asking to try to change the usb port or the display port because it is not working. I tried the viewer on 2 other pcs and always gave the same error. doing the test is found an error to the cameras and the screen in the viewer always remains black. my email is and the number of the viewer is 1WMGH520549484

I just sent a zip file of the log to Oculus support. Very disappointed with this situation because I just received the refurbished headset and this happened.
