Lenovo MR Headset Causes My Desktop to Flicker but Never Launches VR Display

I have a custome built PC that is compatable based on the Windows MR test result. I'm running the latest Nvidia Geforce driver but I still get a warning. Not sure if this is the issue. I can sucessfully complete the Windows VR setup, have tested sucessfully on another laptop and it works fine but when I plug it into my desktop it just causes the desktop screen to flicker and make my PC lock up. Nothing ever displays out of the headset. Do I need to use 2.2 drivers instead of the latest 2.3? Is there something else I'm missing?

  • Do I understand right? Your Lenovo MR Headset can wotk, but the desktop screen locked up when you using MR headset.

  • No, the headset never displays anyhting. When I plug it in and the Cliff house should load the desktop screen just flickers but and the pc can't be used until you unplug the headset again then the desktop works again.
