Christoferous Posted March 30, 2017 Share Posted March 30, 2017 Vive headset shows 'not tracking' and goes to sleep within a minute when connected to the HDMI port on the GTX 1070 video card, but when connected to a GTX 970 on a separate computer, it fires right up and works normally. Headset that runs on the GTX 970 computer does not work on the GTX 1070 computer either. Yes, we have two Vive setups. To paraphrase from H.R. Hadden from the movie "Contact": "Why have only one when you can have two at twice the price?" The computer that the GTX 1070 is installed to used to have the GTX 970 installed to it, and it worked just fine with the Vive. The Vive worked with the GTX 1070 until a week ago (worked for 3 months) then it suddenly stays on the gray screen in the headset while SteamVR shows that the Headset is not Tracking. Troubleshooting steps already taken: Updated NVidia GeForece Drivers. Moved Basestations closer (was working at 18.5 feet apart, now doesn't work at less than 15 feet apart). Uninstalled and reinstalled all Vive software. Camera is OFF. Rebooted Headset (many many times). Cursed. Prayed. Moved USB cable from 3.0 port to 2.0 port. I have noticed that when the Headset goes to sleep (dull green light) no matter how much I move it, it will not wake up until I reboot it. Unless someone can offer insight or guidance (or even some WAT's) this weekend we will try and reinstall the video card. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
