Shzler Posted October 12, 2018 Share Posted October 12, 2018 Hello there, I have and HTC Vive and two gaming laptops, my HTC vive works perfectly with one of the laptops (my boyfriends). I recently ran the steamVR performance test on my laptop and it says I should be able to run high quality VR. I have finally downloaded everything I need onto my laptop but when I connect the headset I get the red 'Not Ready' message from steamVR with a prompt to reboot the headset and a troubleshooting link for error (208). I have tried rebooting the headset, it goes through the whole reboot process and at the end even says its successfully connected but then when it restarts steamVR it has the same error messages. I have tried unplugging and plugging everything back in SEVERAL times. I have updated my NVIDIA graphics card driver to the most recent version (I have a GTX980M). I set my power management on my graphics card to prefer high performance. I also tried bypassing the link box by directly plugging in the headset to my computer on the advice of another thread, and this actually sort of worked, it detects everything this way and the laptop monitor shows the headset tracking, but the headset display itself blinks in and out. Once again the VR set works perfectly with the other laptop but with mine for some reason it has issues. Any more troubleshooting advice would be extremely appreciated, as my boyfriend is getting sick of me stealing his laptop every time I want to play VR lol.
