    Hey , i own 2x 8940g , one of them bought it new since it came out and the other got it recently from ebay.de USED(for testing and parts) .

    So far i tried an Nvidia Quadro M1000M 2GB GDDR5 (from DELL laptop) - laptop is booting normally (i can hear the windows startup sound) but the screen stays black .

    Second try , with an Nvidia Quadro M1200 4GB GDDR5 (DELL laptop) - same thing as the first card .


    My aim is M2200(if i'll find one to buy) > M1200 > M1000M .

    Any advice or help to get this done ?

    Thank you .

    Have you tried using an external screen? The issue seems to be an issue initializing the internal screen

    yes , i tried and no signal .

    Going to try one more M1200 and M2200(seems like i found one) , and i think both of them and the other 2 will go to sale 50% off.

    That is where i got the info for Nvidia Quadro , it was supposed to be a "plug&play" , but it pretty much seems like not .
    gonna come back after trying the other 2 cards .
