freshaspect Posted October 31, 2020 Share Posted October 31, 2020 Original Vive has worked fine for years.... when I start SteamVR I now get a grey screen and it says that the headset is not tracking. So, far I have tried: - Uninstalling USB drivers - Changing USB ports, bypassing the link box, etc. - Base stations in both modes - Reinstalling Steam and SteamVR - Buying a new USB3 PCI board based on FL1100 chipset and switching to Fresco USB3 drivers (followed by repeat of all of the above as this didn't help either) - Opened up base stations (they're so old as to be out of warranty anyway). One had white dust everywhere where it looks like a plastic laser lens had exploded. The other seemed to have one dead laser diode. Extracted the laser diode from the blown up one that seemed to be working ok and transferred it to the other one so that it had 2 operational laser diodes. STILL no dice.... - Gut tells me this is a software issue but not sure what I can do next - how can I diagnose if its the base stations or the headset? Any pointers would be appreciated as at this rate the whole thing is trash. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
