DVI "blinking"

06-18-2007, 08:51 PM
I switched over to DVI a while ago because it suppose to marginally be better and my video card/monitor support it. But I've notice (and its gotten MUCH worse) that the screen keeps flickering, going blank and then coming back. Both connections are solid, I've tried blowing into both. Is it possible the cable (which is in perfect condition) is bad or could be my monitor's connection?

I'm going to be ordering a cheap replacement cable in a minute, but has anyone ever heard of this problem happening?

You might experience this issue due to the long cable or if the resolution on the video card is too high for cable to handle.

I would suggest to get a DVI booster, but before that, try a new cable, it might help.
