Oculus suggests rolling back Nvidia drivers to fix Rift 'black screen' issues

Oculus Rift connection problems

As first noticed by Polygon, users on the Oculus forums are reporting "Can't Reach Oculus Runtime Service" error messages when trying to open the Oculus app.

If you're the owner of an Oculus Rift headset and it's not working for you, you're not alone.

An Oculus staffer on the company's forums further confirmed the issues, apologizing on behalf of the company.

Belfiore tweeted that Windows 10 S is going to be a mode of existing Windows versions next year and "not a distinct version". We use Win10S as an option for schools or businesses that want the "low-hassle"/ guaranteed performance version.

We aren't quite sure when the problem will be fixed but it is affecting all the current Oculus Rift users. "Our teams apologise for any inconvenience this may be causing you and appreciate your patience while we work on a resolution".

Rebooting the Oculus software, or the PC it's running on doesn't seem to be working at the time. The certificate had expired, and Oculus said it is "looking at a few different ways to resolve the issue".

If you have to get into virtual reality right now, and you can't wait for an Oculus fix, some Rift owners have found a workaround.
