I am the pround owner of a HP Z1 G1, E3 Xeon, 16gb ram, Quadro 4000m, 240gb SSD.
It served me well for a few years until in crashed recently (video froze, followed by a hard restart). After a repair install (Win 8.1) the screen resolution was stuck at 1024x768 so i decided to go for a fresh install.
Windows 8.1 got stuck at the start: it couldn't find/use the partition, even after a cmd diskpart. Ubuntu does something similar, the setup starts, but freezes before i can choose install/try.
Also, during the start-up, some random character backgrounds in the back are green.
The bios diagnosticts showed the ram and hdd are ok.
So, is the graphics card fried or there is some other problem?
