@Emirbeyhatun, Please take a look at the highlighted setting and set it to the Nvidia processor option. You may have to reboot. (Please, let me know if this is a Vive Pro and not a Vive.) edit: You may also need to look into your laptop's BIOS settings and set your windows power scheme to high performance as well.

@Emirbeyhatun, Typically these types of incompatibilities are accompanied by error 208/308, not the one you saw so I'm glad you were able to figure out a workaround. My best guess is that this is related to HDCP. The linkbox acts as a signal booster to help ensure that the signal reaching the HMD can actually drive the display. In some instances, the GPU fails to establish a secured session with the linkbox, by bypassing the linkbox your GPU was able to establish a secured signal chain directly with the display device. This may be something that's specific to your chipset, GPU, or motherboard.
