Not one of then has been solved, because no developer here has been able to reproduce the problem :\

We hope that some additional information will help solve this issue.

Try opening blender from the command prompt:
When opening the cmd (command prompt) paste this command and press Enter:

"C:/Program Files/Blender Foundation/Blender/blender" --factory-startup --debug-gpu

Then tell us what you see in the cmd window
Any questions just ask ;)

I don't know what implications this has on renders, etc., but it is the onl way I could get Blender to work.

Same issue here. Running on a Notebook with integrated GPU.
Here's the cmd output:
