  1. Hello, After having bought my Vive Cosmos and set it up, it worked fine for a day or two then died out entirely. I've been going back and forth for some time now with Customer service from the place I've bought it and HTC but everytime it came back labelled as "working but it'sbeen now 6 months since i've bought it and it is still not working. I'm not going to say I'm not pissed because I am. I've tried to work this out on my own and here's what I've come up with : I've first reinstalled every piece of software related to Vive, Steam and Steam VR. I thought that maybe I just needed to reconfigure from start the Vive Cosmos for it to work. I was able to merely do all the setup but got stuck when trying to pair the Controllers. I noticed that the Linkbox was turned off which disconected the Vive Cosmos. After restarting the Setup, I couldn't get the Linkbox to stay on, it kept disconnecting after 10-12 seconds. During this brief moment, I could see on the Vive Console an "Activation" status and heard a USB device plugging-in sound. It's appears that there might be an issue with power, I've figured out it wasn't the linkbox because the box stays on if no helmet is plugged-in. By removing the front panel from the Vive, I have been able to get the Vive Cosmos to startup and activate itself. I was able to gather the helmet's information : SN : FA97PAM00208 Firmware version : / 6000 Cam / DP : 20190804 / 1604 RF version : 3.15.1 / 3.15.1 The Vive Cosmos couldn't start because the front cover was missing. I plugged it in and the Vive continued its activation. It appeared that the video of the Vive was detected and Steam VR started but I couldn't get further as the linkbox and the Vive Cosmos turned off on their own. I've been able to redo this whole process but the helmet still shuts down on his own. If I had to guess, I would say that there is a power issue withing the Vive Cosmos. I'm not able to figure out exactly what but it's power related for sure. I would gladely appreciate some help. Have you ever been having this kind of issues ? It's really really frustrating given the price of this hardware and the real lack of documentation and troubleshooting guides on the website. I've also been having some talks with the support which weren't successful. This hardware is everything but cheap but right now it's useless and it's been like so for 6 months now. The reseller and Vive says it's fine but it's not. It's a real shame in my opinion that I had to try everything by myself and that none of the "professionals" were able to come where I'm standing right now with what's wrong with my Vive. Nevertheless, Thanks in advance if you can help me. If someone is interested in helping me I can even show you the steps I'm following with a video. Maxime. @C.T. @stvnxu @jagibson
  2. I have an MSI laptop with a MiniDP. I used an adapter to connect, recently found out it doesn't support 1.2, and failed. I'm now purchasing the Vive recommended 3 foot 1.2 MiniDP-MiniDP. The laptop I am using is an MSI GP73 Leopard 8RE with the 6gb 1060. I have factory reset my laptop as I have read of driver issues, is there anything else I should do or can do?
  3. Hello I have a full kit htc vive pro and I can not do the update because I have no button on the back and when I go in the settings to update the base station it says "Bluetooh signal from the interconnect box not detected. please check the connections of the interconnect box, then disconnect and reconnect the power supply to reset the box, and finally restart steamVR." I do not know it is station 2.0 of the live pro full kit so if you can help me and if possible I see blur because 1200 euro anyway.
  4. Little background, I just bought the Zephyrus S GX502W enjoying it and the such. However I try to hook up my Vive and as I'm plugging my HDMI into the port, bam blue screen with error: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED I plug in an external monitor to the HDMI, it works fine. I also tried reinstalling the latest graphics drivers to no avail. I'm honestly not sure what the issue is, if anyone can help I'd greatly appreciate it!

  5. I got my Vive roughly two weeks ago, and have already come across an issue. Starting two/three days ago, upon connecting the power, the light turns green. Good. Then, upon starting up any program, the light goes red, and the display remains black. However, looking through SteamVR's VR view, the tracking is running flawlessly. leaving the headset perfectly still for a while prompts the screen back into life, but moving it shuts it down again. I have: Checked all cables are secure. Updated AND rolled back windows and drivers Attempted various methods of restarting the computer, SteamVR, and the Vive. Re-installed SteamVR AND Viveport and a lot more. I'm unable to check any cable-based issues due to being a jobless, social drop-out 15 year old who's broke after buying the Vive. @Synthesis @VibrantNebula
