Hello everybody!

I have a small problem. I have a Geforce GTX 1050 as a graphics Card and a AMD 6100 Six core processor. I went to buy a Oculus Rift. Everything worked so far, until i started changing the HDMI cables. My PC only has 1 HDMI Slot, so i went and bought a VGA -> HDMI adapter. The problem is, that i can't get a Signal from the VGA slot. I tried a VGA cable with another monitor, but it said, my pc was in Sleep mode. I haven't really found any helpful Information on this and i hope you can help me. I really Need this second HDMI slot.

*Exact* GPU. That means the brand and model, not just GTX 1050. And the exact motherboard.



Can't write a prescription without knowing all the symptoms and making a diagnosis.

You can use software like speccy. Or look at the motherboard for identifying information. Or look where you purchased for information as to the specs.

This is important information. A few AM3+ motherboards have an integrated graphics solution. Most do not. I'm not going to venture a guess, other than the vaguest "stuff has to be plugged into the GPU" without knowing these details.

Without information, there's not much anyone can say other than the advice SkyNet has given you.

Also, note that your GPU is a bit below the minimum required specs for an Oculus Rift, which will have a cost to your experience.

You need to have at least one HDMI for the Oculus and one connection for your monitor on the GPU. 10XX series GPU's need a active adapter for VGA.

As a side note your well under the spec's for Oculus, be careful of motion sickness.

So, i'll then buy a Adapter from DVI-D to HDMI. It's quite cheap and it should work. I've tested my specs first too. It at least got the minimum requirements. Thank you all.
