I’m getting a black screen in my Oculus Rift headset or display.
If you’re seeing a black screen in your Oculus Rift headset or the display you’re using (example: monitor, television), try these troubleshooting tips:
- Check to make sure your Rift and display are both plugged into your dedicated graphics card. If your Rift and display are plugged into your integrated graphics card, you won’t see an image.
- If you’re already using your HDMI port for your display, or your graphics card doesn’t have a HDMI port, try the following options:
|Display Options||Rift Options|
|HDMI to mini-HDMI adapter||HDMI to mini-HDMI adapter|
|DisplayPort adapter||HDMI to DVI adapter|
|DVI port||HDMI to VGA adapter|
|HDMI to DVI adapter|
|HDMI to VGA adapter|
Note: Some adapters may not be compatible or may cause performance problems.
