Default Bad DVI cable?

Ok, so I just got another 1 GB of RAM for my computer and I put it in. My computer boots up (it goes through system checks and POST), but my monitor won't detect a signal. It's as if I don't have a cable connected to it.

I've tried using only one video card, restoring the old RAM configuration, resetting the CMOS, reversing the cable (using a different M on the monitor)

I run a Acer 19in DVI to GeForce 6600GT's in SLi.

1 GB of ram (Pre-extra 1 GB)
3000+ Athlon 64

Could this situation be a culprit of a bad DVI cable? The cable doesn't really look like it has bent pins, but this situation has happened before all of this.

A few months back the same thing happened, and I had to do some jiggling of the cable and a little "physical conditioning" and it worked.

Any ideas?

Default Re: Bad DVI cable?

just do some troubleshooting, try your monitor on another computer, your cable on another monitor, the best thing to do is trial and error, that usually gives you the answer quicker than anything.
