No HDMI Connection on Oculus Rift

Level 2

I recently purchased a new graphics card which was a RTX 3050 and had an original Oculus Rift that was never opened. I recently went to set up my Oculus Rift and as I was setting it up, I connected both of the sensors successfully, but the HDMI cannot be found. I tried restarting the app and my computer and made sure that both HDMI ports were working and were plugged into the dedicated graphics GPU. I have search online and seen that other users have had this problem and could also not find a solution. I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem...
