Preview Game in VR headset stuck at loading splash screen

Hi i’m trying to preview my game from my oculus rift but when i click play my headset is stuck at the ue4 editor splash screen that just says loading. Several months ago i did this and it worked but after re-setting up my computer it seems to no longer work. Playing games works perfectly fine as well as previewing games in the editor on my computer screen.

I have tried:
updating my oculus rift
unplugging / replugging
trying to preview just the vr template
trying versions 4.21.2 and 4.23.1
turning off level streaming
waiting several hours for it to “load”

i have been unable to get this working again so hopefully someone has an idea on how to get it working, thanks.
