I've been trying to get my Tecra A4 to work properly, but the GPU won't accept the drivers. The drivers install just fine on Win7, WinXP and Linux Mint, but they refuse to initialise the GPU after the reboot. Basically:
XP Pro SP3: Driver installs, after reboot reports the device couldn't start.
7 Pro: Driver installs, after reboot freezes on boot logo.
Mint 19.3 32-bit: Doesn't load graphical environment unless I use XVesa.
Looks like the GPU IS toast after all. I got my hopes up for nothing because the laptop looked mostly clean outside and inside and the screen didn't artifact all over the place. Might try to fix it later.
I also found a plastic clip for my GA-K8VT800Pro in good condition. In my own room, no less. I'm slowly getting to the point where I don't remember where I even got some of my stuff. Good thing I keep some stuff that otherwise looks useless 😀
