Why isn't the Oculus software detecting my Oculus Rift's HDMI?

Asked: Jun 23 2019 | 6:02 am EDT 2264 Views 0 Answers

I recently bought an Oculus Rift. At first I had problems with the HDMI connection, but I solved them by restoring the drivers of my graphics card.

It worked for a week, and overnight, the problem came back: my PC does not detect HDMI from my Oculus Rift. Whether my drivers are up-to-date or from 2016 does not change the situation. I checked the cables of my headset, they are in perfect condition and well connected. Then I tested my Oculus on another PC to see if the problem came from the headset, but it worked perfectly.

Thinking that the problem came from my HDMI port, I connected a 2nd screen by HDMI, and there too, no problem. I tried reinstalling the Oculus drivers and the Oculus software, but it didn't work.

I have tried many recommendations from people on forums or in videos, but nothing has solved my problem. I have also asked for help at the Oculus Support, but so far they haven't helped me more than videos and forums.

I need help please!

By the way, here are the specs of my PC:
- Brand: Asus
- Model: G75VX (it's a laptop)
- OS: Windows 10 (64 bits)
- Graphics card: Nvidia Geforce GTX 670MX (I know it's not in the list of cards supported by Oculus, but I've already managed to run my Oculus Rift on it, and I've seen several people on forums that had the same graphics card as me and played very well in VR with it, so there shouldn't be any problems on that side)
- Processor: Intel Core I7

Here are my logs if someone wants to try to analyze them:
