I just got an HTC Vive recently and when ever i try to play a game on SteamVR, the game will randomly (between 5-10 mins) go unresponsive and i have to quit them. I've seen other threads on this but none of the solutions have worked.

My specs are
I5-4590
Arctic liquid freezer 120
msi gtx 1070 gaming X
8GB of RAM

The only thing i could thing of it being is my Hard Drive not being fast enough (because mine is slow) but it doesn't show the games using that much % of disk.

I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

A slow drive shouldn't normally cause such an issue. I would first make sure CPU and GPU are not overheating when you're running VR games. After that, maybe try updating your graphics driver.

I've made sure that nothing over heating and I just bought a liquid cooler for that reason. My GPU stays under 70°C and my CPU stays lower. I have not tried reinstalling steamVR because I didn't know how but I will try that

If it isn't overheating, then the troubleshooting gets tricky. (mostly because you don't have an error message.)

first off..
Define: unresponsive.
- No audio?
- No graphics?
- No keyboard input?
(like, you can't perform windows shortcuts.. Alt+tab, cntl+alt+del, etc)

----

After those questions, I would..
1) Ensure your graphics card drivers are updated.


After all that is done,
1) run some kind of 2d graphics stress test.
2) Run the Steam VR system test.
3) Run a VR performance benchmark test. (if avail.)
Else, run TiltBrush, or some major well tested game and let it run with the headset just sitting in place for 30 min.

If problems still persist, then let us know the exact symptoms and the additional info.

By unresponsive I mean it goes to the "Now Playing" screen where it just shows what ever game I'm playing being loaded. Except it never comes out of that screen unless I quit the game.

Graphic drivers have been updated already.

I just found that but it seems like there is no solution?


EDIT: just tried using SteamVR beta and took longer to display the waiting for screen but this was in the logs
