About the same time last year I finally got this piece of crap Pimax (5k) working on my Ryzen 3900X on X570 m/b with Zotac RTX3080… after weeks of technical support and faffing around… But as luck would have it, due to work I got busy so uninstalled it and packed it away.
As work settled down, I upgraded to Win 11 and got a nice new 5900x processor and 49’ ultrawide monitor and started playing Elite Dangerous again after a year’s Hiatus… It was then that I remembered I had a Pimax from a stupid kickstarter years ago.
Remembering the pain I had trying to get this piece of junk working last year, I put off reinstalling it until I could fight the urge to play Elite in VR once more.
Yesterday, I pulled it out, ran the latest version of Pitool, bios automatically updated and it ran first time!!!
AMAZING!! Maybe I was wrong after all…
Nope. As of today, As soon as I power up the Pimax 5k, Windows completely dies… I mean silent, hard, instant reset to boot screen.
Has anyone else run into hard reset when both pitool is running and pimax headset are powered up?
