SteamVR Error 208

My Vive's display is not booting on my PC when I launch SteamVR. I'm currently using a miniDP to DP cable to connect to my GTX1080 and switching the cable to an HDMI hasn't worked either.

Do you have more than one moniutor plugged in? If you have more than, just leave one montor and VIVE plugged in your discrete GPU.

"My Vive's display is not booting on my PC when I launch SteamVR."

I find this a bit confusing.  Do you mean that the display on the headset is not showing anything?

Or do you mean that you don't see the mirror image of the headset on the computer monitor?

Fixed the problem. Downgraded my NVIDIA drivers to 398.11 and the Vive's display boots now.
