Background: This is the second Rift I purchased for when I have friends/family over. It's only been used 2 times and today was the third time I went to use it and discovered the issues. Never had a problem with it before but now it glitches to the point it's unusable as you'll see in the video. I didn't update any of my Nvidia drivers until after I noticed the issue thinking it may resolve it but it did not. I tried everything I could think of except reinstalling Windows and that seems alone seems like a ridiculous way to narrow down what the real problem is.
PC Specs: CPU: i9-7900X GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti MOBO: Prime X299-DELUXE RAM: Corsair 64GB DDR4 OS: Crap 10... Windows 10 Pro
@vannagirl thanks for the reply. This happened before I opted in the beta but I didn't think it was a major issue that I couldn't quickly fix so I didn't record it. Prior to 1.22 I had 1.20 and older Nvidia drivers.
Yes, I only use usbs on the mobo but never had an issue with that even on two of my other custom PC builds.
Did you up the SS? Because that lagging happens when SS is set to high as well. Also, how are your sensors setup in your room. You could also switch the Sensors or HMD to a USB 2.0 instead of 3.0. Alternatively, the chipset drivers used for the onboard usb might be..badly. Have you tried the inatech usb pci-e board?
SS? To be honest, I haven't changed much on this PC since I built it. I know people are having issues with Windows 10 updates but I haven't on my two other PCs that run fine with the first Rift I purchased at launch. I never tried the inatech usb because I never had a problem on my other PCs, including this one until now. I find it hard to believe that's a legit fix and not another workaround. If everything else I can plug in a USB ports work and only the Rift has issues... need I say more?
I have the sensors setup on an Evo desk that have no problem going through the setup. When it worked they were in the same position. I have a similar setup on a treadmill desk next to the Evo desk that uses the Rift/PC setup that works just fine... I don't have many bad experiences with the Rift but when I do, it's frustrating as hell...
After finally installing the Fall Creators update two weeks ago, I had stuttering and lag and regular frame drops when I booted up DCS World. I googled the problem and found a solution (on the Blizzard forums for Heathstone funnily enough) ... Fall Creators update adds a 'Disable Fullscreen Optimizations' option under the compatibility tab on the properties window (right click on shortcut icon). Selecting it disables the 'optimizations' and DCS World was back to normal.
I haven't had time to try any other games to see if the 'optimizations' need to be disabled for all VR apps yet. But maybe this will help?
@Syrellaris I've only changed that in Big Screen but if you watched the video all the issues start in Home and are consistent with any app I launched. As for the drivers, I noticed the issues when I had 388 installed then updated to the most recent version because some forums said that worked for them. It didn't help me unfortunately.
@Mot666 it doesn't hurt to try. I'll try just about anything at this point. I'll check it out sometime tomorrow.
