    its not broken, it does give video on vga without issues unless i install the driver.
    it used to have it on my zbook but the laptop screen stopped working as well the SATA Drivers, mostly a faulty bios.

    played GTA V on high settings on it, but cant make it work on my 8770w ;c

    Are you sure it's the screen and not the GPU? I personally think that it is the GPU that is dead.

    Its not dead, played Besiege without drivers and gave me 5fps, but without errors.
    the thing from my laptop was because of the faulty bios that died, ZBook has 2 bios, 1 soldered to Mobo and otherone remove able, idk which one died tho

    The driver installation is the one that usually signifies dead GPU, or that it works only on external. In any case, try with modified drivers - if you can't install them - the GPU is dead.

    Not really, haven't got an answer yet, I wrote him a few times, but no answer. I might just take the chance for $100 and see... But I need to get one of those 1 time use credit cards, and put $100 on it and make the payment, I won't expose my personal Visa for sure

    I think we should wait for response from the seller. From his list, there are 4 different models under one item. You don't know which one you will receive. Why are these things so rare in usa but they all in Asia? I don't understand
