    I take it you tried pulling the cable out of both ends, removing any dust and reattaching it?

    it's DVI.. the cable will be fine. with DVI it either receives the signal or it doesn't.

    That's not strictly true in this case, although I understand where you're getting it from (Monster cables for example).

    DVI is made up of separate channels of data. If one of these isn't received, but others are it can cause for certain sections of colour to be missing.

    It's quite easy for me to partly pull out and angle my DVI socket that makes the screen go a funky solid colour
