Oculus Rift VR headsets everywhere get bricked for a silly reason
If you're the owner of an Oculus Rift headset and it's not working for you, you're not alone.
PCMag encountered the same error trying to run an Oculus Rift in NY. Over on the Oculus Rift support page, the following message is being displayed: "If you are using an Nvidia GPU and now experiencing display or performance issues with your Oculus Rift, please make sure you are using driver version 388.59".
Rebooting the Oculus software, or the PC it's running on doesn't seem to be working at the time. Until then Oculus Rift owners will have to settle for plain old boring regular reality.
The current Nvidia driver version is 391.01, so Oculus Rift users facing these issues have to roll back quite far. This, it turns out, contains an expired security certificate, preventing the Oculus client from doing its thing.
"We are aware of and actively investigating an issue impacting ability to access Rift software", reads a post on the Oculus forums. This is also affecting developers and companies using the Rift professionally at events, conferences, and more. "Our teams apologise for any inconvenience this may be causing you and appreciate your patience while we work on a resolution". We will update this story when that happens, stay tuned! Some users have even resorted to changing the Windows 10 clock to before the certificate's date of expiration, although this temporary workaround could cause issues with Windows Update Service and is NOT recommended.
