Error 108 and I'm getting desperate


Recommended Posts

108 almost certainly means you're having some sort of connection failure. Try bypassing the linkbox. Are you getting a light on your HMD at all? What are you plugging your cables into? Is everything in the same GPU including the monitor?

Reseat the cables, make sure your power outlet is actually feeding power to the HMD.

So if you're getting a red light, you are getting power, but you've demonstrated that none of the cables works and you're still getting 108 error. 

Give this a try. If this doesn't work, there may be an issue with the HMD itself. I'd recommend returning it for a replacement if you're within 14 days of your purchase on Vive.com or within the return period of the third party retailer if you purchased from them.

  1. Unplug all Link Box cables from your PC.
  2. From your host computer, go to SteamVR > Settings > Developer. Make sure the Developer Settings checkbox is checked.
  3. Click on Remove all SteamVR USB Devices. Make sure the link box's USB cable is not plugged in and click Yes.
  4. Once this is complete, quit SteamVR, plug your link box in (USB, HDMI, Power), and re-launch SteamVR.
