Rift S - Sensors can't track headset & Infinite Loading Screen



My Rift S has currently an infinity "loading screen" and refuses to progress further into my home. I've also noticed that my touch controllers were like at the bottom of the ground being stuck-


I thought a fresh device setup might fix this problem but it turns out that once I did, it told me that the Sensors couldn't tack my headset...


Now I have done my research and bought a PCIe USB 3.0 Card as I've concluded that it has worked for many.

I installed and checked if it was detected and all. 

But sadly when trying to do it again I get the same result as before...


If anyone has any solutions, please tell me.

Hey there! Getting stuck at a loading screen and wrestling with hardware/software issues is decidedly not what VR is all about! Let's take a closer look at that and see what could be tripping you up.

1. Disconnect your computer from the internet.

2. Backup any necessary content.

• You can find steps on how to do so by clicking here.


3. Reboot into Safe Mode.

4. Uninstall Oculus PC app using the Control Panel.

5. Delete all Oculus folders from the following folder:
