I have a laptop HP Omen 15-ce008nw (i5-7300HQ, GTX 1050, 8GB RAM).
When I try to setup Oculus Rift, everything goes well until I need to use goggles to proceed.
Goggles display black screen, but they are connected and detected.
If I connect goggles using HDMI port, there is no image and no sound. When I use mini displayport, there is no image but sound is OK.
I updated laptop's bios, Windows and nVidia drivers.
HP support suggest me to connect with Oculus support.
I wish this can help you ! This is a possible solution.
Rift goes black after some time (from 1 to 15 minutes working perfectly) while
RIFT audio keeps working. NO ERROR MESSAGE, and Oculus application keeps
thinking everything Is all right…
Some laptops have
a problem with their integrated HDMI output, due to “I DON’T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT”
related with direct connection to NVIDIA… and bla bla bla…
LAPTOP INTERNAL HDMI.
adaptor from Mini displayport to HDMI (always supposing the laptop has a mini
displayport), BUT it’s not valid any adaptor. I had 2 adaptors… both could
output 4K, but couldn’t output 4K at 60fps !!!
So BUY AN EXTERNAL CONVERTER FROM MINI DISPLAYPORT TO HDMI 2.0, 4K 60fps. (COST: about 9€)
The one that
worked for me is the ICZI Adaptor Mini Displayport to HDMI (Thunderbolt 2)
which is an HDMI 2.0 output and offers 3840x2160 60fps output.

testing for hours this morning and works perfectly!!! So happy to solve this
problem that annoyed me for several days. And happy to help others !!
