pardon the ignorance, this is the first time I have delt with this type of cord and have no idea what it is called.
Ok so i bought a new flat screen and it came with two cables, one the traditional varioty, and other one more pins or holes and I am guessing it is some form of digital cable.
when I built my new pc it didnt work at all, and I assumed probabliy correctly that it was because my video card had no drivers.
Now with drivers, it is all sketchy, flashes and squirls.
normal cable works fine.
what am I doing wrong.
