Ultimate List of Fixes that Still Do Not Work. This is awful.

Level 2
The worst part is it is not consistent. I played 3 hours last night straight, ZERO issues. I never unplugged anything, or changed anything, and today I play and it crashes in the main menu. This is just awful. Why continue to ignore this issue and not fix it?

Anyways, here is my list of fixes. Hopefully this helps someone because it did not help me. Cannot post links unfortunately.

Run Oculus in Administrator mode

Control Panel -> Devices and Printers -> Hardware

Close Other Webcam software

Look through Task Manager for apps that may interfere

Visual C++  Install -

Reinstall/Update Geforce Experience drivers

Reinstall/Update Chipset Drivers - 

Check Windows Update for updates

Make sure SteamVR, Oculus, Headset are all up to date

Check Cables:
Change DisplayPort- make sure it is first on GPU

Make sure you use a USB 3.0 Red connector
Just try all USB connectors

Try without USB extensions

Try without USB Hubs

Unplug other USB devices you may not need

USB Select Suspend

Reinstall USB Drivers

Power Managment on USB Drivers

Update drivers through oculus-driver: C:\Program Files\Oculus\Support\oculus-drivers

Reinstall Oculus software: 

Repair Oculus software

Uninstall Razer Cortex, turn off Kaspersky, other anti virus software

Try with no headset audio

Public Test Channel

Install Oculus tray app

Install RiftS Fix app - 

Use Steam VR Beta

Uninstall Steam VR and try to run the game (you don't need Steam VR to play)

Reinstall Steam VR

Run Steam VR without opening steam: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\SteamVR\bin\win64

Install on separate account - 

End Game fixes:

Internal/External Powered USB Hub - 

Use headphones

Lower Ram voltage - link

Reset your PC/Windows

Plug the headset into a powered usb hub  (ie not directly off the motherboard.) Test again and I bet the issues go away.

which one u recommend


I did a bit of research on various brands and ended up going for an Orico powered 7 port USB 3.0 hub. It comes with mains adapter and 1m USB cable.  Wasn't too expensive (£20 uk)

Note: As it's externally powered, you'll need to reboot the PC first, before the system picks up the hub.

thank u i will give it a try

I'm not saying this will work for everyone but it certainly did for me. If it doesn't it's not an expensive item but you can always return it for a refund.
