Changing HDMI Port gets me no image

Hello peeps, me again. So, since last post (My Garuda boots, but no image?) I’ve been facing the issue of my screen mysteriously going black out of nowhere during usage and I thought I ruled out hardware issues, but turns out my 750ti is truly going to it’s final rest (or so I suppose, the technician didn’t detect any issues and asked me to check monitor and cables but the issue still happens even when both are changed).

But then I found another issue. As I said before, I’ve got Garuda as daily driver, but I do have zorin on a mini SSD as a fallback system. When I change hdmi ports from gpu to motherboard and turn on the machine, turns out zorin has no problem with it, but… Garuda does? I mean, it boots okay, but it doesn’t get to show me the login splash, it just doesn’t show me anything other then the grub.

I figure that’s because I installed it with proprietary drivers? But idk I might be missing something here. Tried different kernels (lts and hardened) and different snapshots, all the same deal. But when my 750 is still able to work and the cable is in the gpu port, Garuda shows me stuff no issue. So… no clue, please send help xDD

Also, when I change my hdmi cable from the GPU port to the motherboard port, on zorin, it seems to not go black at all even with an entire day of work, so I figure my GPU is truly and sadly gone with the wind (sea-wind, that is).

(also, the below inxi is from the last post since my gpu is not able to do anything right now so I can’t get to my garuda system. if you feel like I should stick a live-boot to get the latest-and-greatest inxi of the system, I’ll provide it right away. last update was actually 20/nov, not partial since bluish solved my issue with updating as well).
