So I'm going to guide you around my problem as a step-by-step list. I'm using an HP Pavilion with Windows 11, one intel GPU and one MX250 GPU.
After that, you cannot try again as airlink won't let you connect to the PC and the oculus link with cable won't even appear as an option on the quest 2.
If you try to do anything with the oculus software after that it won't work, not even the X button to close the window, and you have to close all the clients with the task manager to try again.
I'm out of ideas, as I was sure it was a cable issue, but it doing the same with AirLink tells me that it may be either a quest2 or a pc issue.
AKA: I've got it working in another PC once, but not my own.
ABSOLUTELY NOW WAY WILL YOUR PC RUN LINK........THAT MX250 GPU IS NOT EVEN REMOTELY CLOSE TO REQUIRED SPEC.
