I bought a Vive Pro recently (my first experience with VR/AR) and upgraded my PC (GTX1080) in order to get it running.
Since the first try about a week ago, I often get random Black Screens. The image in the HMD freezes shortly (which makes f***ing motion sick) and then gets black. When I get rid of the HMD the PC monitor is also black and I can´t do anything but restart the pc in order to get it running again.
I have been trying to find the reason but it really happens randomly:
- with different Nividia drivers
- withing SteamVR, VivePort or my own Unreal Engine project
- also with AR (SWorks SDK Demo or UE Plugin)
- sometimes after 10 seconds, sometimes after 15 minutes, sometimes never (although I did never run it for longer than an hour)
I dont really know what else to try - any suggestions?

So after a few frustating days I think my setup is stable now.
I found out that the nvidia driver crashed when it happened, and I found a post where someone suggested to disable the Intel Virtualisation in BIOS.
So thats what I did and I haven´t had any blackscreen issues since then - I hope it stays like this...!

So, just for the sake of completing the question I will tell my hardware setup:
Palit GTX 1080 with Nvidia driver version 398.36
Dell Precision Workstation with a Xeon E5-1620 v2

@DaKenpachi, are you still seeing this issue or did it stabilize?
