Rift S cant connect, but Orange Light AND Sound?!

Level 2

Since today I am having a problem with my Rift (have i running since 2019) - it shows in the software as not Connected, but the Orange light is on.

I have tested all my USB ports on the motherboard, as well as the USB-C port on my graphics card - and both display ports, to no avail.


The curious thing is that the audio output on the headset works fine?

I have reinstalled the Oculus drivers, reinstalled all the Oculus software and also have the latest nVidia drivers.
Do you have any clues as to what I could check?
I can not attach the zip from the loggatherer here somehow?
