Re: Error 400 (Compositor not available) - Symptoms and Solutions

Keep receiving error 400 when trying to setup my htc vive
I have an Asus Gaming laptop with NVidia GeForce GTX 1050ti graphics card,. I have updated my drives, tried rebooting , unplugging and trying different usb ports, tried using a mini display port instead of hdmi because my laptop has 1 hdmi port but nothing is working and I keep receiving same error code. I need help thanks!

I have been having the same problem and the headset is not being viewed as a moniter. I have a GTX 570 and I know it is under minimum reqirments but I have been trying to make it work anyways. Please help.

@Puddle of Mud

 

It isn't just under the minimum requirements, it's significantly under the minimum requirements. In a very broad sense, the GTX 570 is less than half as capable as the GTX 1060, which is our minimum recommended GPU for Vive.

Even if you solve Error 400, the games will be unplayable.

Thank you,

Hey John, the graphics card will not be doing games, I am trying to check that everything works before I give it to my family. It is a suprise and I am sure the headset should light up or respond to movements
