SteamVR doesn't recognize my vive tracker after 2hours of playing


Recommended Posts

I have started having this problem since I formatted my computer from scratch. When I'm playing a game for about two hours (vrchat for example), one of my live trackers loses tracking and SteamVR continues to show its icon but it's blinking, like if telling me that it doesn't have tracking, but it stills on. The only way to get it to work again is to restart my computer, so this seems very strange to me and I don't know what else to do.

Things I tried:
- reinstall steamvr and steam
- disconnect all vr devices and reconnect them
- recalibrate the tracker that has the problem when this happens (which makes things worse, because somehow the problem ends up being passed to another tracker and it does not give good results)

To keep in mind: When Windows was installing all the VR drivers for the first time, at some point I had received a notification windows error with the update or isntall of one of the devices, I have the feeling that the error is there and it was some kind of vive tracker driver. So the only thing I can think of is to reinstall the drivers from scratch, but I don't know how to do that.

I'm reinstalling the usb drivers using SteamVR. But i don't think it's gonna work because when i did it and i reseted my pc, windows didn't notify me about any driver installed, so i don't know anymore

I think It sounds frustrating indeed. Here are a couple of suggestions:

  1. Reinstall Vive Tracker Drivers: Since you suspect a driver issue, try reinstalling the drivers for your Vive trackers from scratch. You can typically find driver installation instructions on the manufacturer's website or within the SteamVR settings.

  2. USB Driver Reinstallation: While reinstalling USB drivers via SteamVR, ensure all VR devices are disconnected, then reconnect them after the driver installation completes. This might help resolve any driver-related issues.

If these steps don't work, reaching out to Vive support.
