Changed cable...Now Horrible Video Quality

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just bought a QVS 10ft VGA cable (HD15) from MicroCenter to replace my DVI cable that was 6 feet because of length issues. I just got my computer up and running and the video quality SUCKS!

Theres random white lines going flickering in the background. I'm seeing doubles of everything. It looks horrible! How do I fix this?

Retailers mark their cables up a ton. I would recommend buy online. Monoprice has great products at great prices and has exceptional customer service. 10' DVI cable is about 6 dollars.

if you know someone at microcenter who can give you a discount, its almost 70% off cables. Also if you went from Dvi to VGA thats a downgrade and im sure quality should suffer. If its the other way then something is wrong with the cable/and user error ; )
