Let me start with my configuration:
SteamVR Version: 1.10.32 (1584924836)
Viveport version: 22.214.171.124
OS: Windows 10 (10.0.0.18362)
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming OC 11GB GDDR5X (352 bit)
VBIOS version: 126.96.36.199.6a
Graphic card drivers version: 188.8.131.5275
Nvidia drivers version: 445.75
Headset's firmware version: 184.108.40.2068
I can't get the device to work. There is constant red light on the headset and it displays no image (black screen). From time to time, Vive Console displays one of the errors: 003, 210 (especially this one) or 218, but after several restarts it says everything is OK but still no display.
The controllers and tracking work fine. I was able to configure the room and when I display the VR view on PC, I can move around the headset and controllers to see proper reaction.
When I turn off the Direct Mode in SteamVR settings, headset displays my desktop but it's upside-down. It makes me think that the headset is not broken. After turning Direct Mode back on, I get the black screen back again.
Sometimes, while booting VR, the LED flashes green for a brief moment, the sound switches to headset's headphones and after a second or two, the LED turns red and the black screen remains.
Things I've tried and didn't help:
- Updating everything including MOBO drivers, GPU drivers, Viveport, SteamVR, Windows to the newest versions, even tried BETA versions
- Disconnecting and reconnecting every cable available
- Switching USB and DisplayPort ports
- Rebooting both PC and VR headset multiple times
- Reconfiguring the whole kit from scratch several times
- Reinstalling the whole software from scratch
- Changing PC power management
- Disabling the firewall and antivirus
- Enabling motion compensation
I've contacted both Vive and SteamVR support but I only got a bunch of generic advices I also found on the internet before.
Is those 2 topics the issue seems to be similar to mine:
In those topic updating the VBIOS helped but I'm not sure how and if I can update mine.
I go to the Aorus Engine's preferences and click "Check for BIOS updates" in the "VGA" tab but it says there are no updates available. Also according to this site: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/?architecture=NVIDIA&manufacturer=Gigabyte&model=GTX+1080+Ti&version=&interface=&memType=GDDR5X&memSize=11264&since= there is no newer BIOS for my GPU.
I attach SteamVR system report. I can also share the result from Vive Diagnostic Tool but I need a temporary login and password to run it.
I lost over 10 hours trying to set it up and I'm getting pretty desperate about it...
Thanks for any help help in advance!
