Okay I just removed pin #7 (DDC Data) and pin #6 (DDC Clock) on the DVI connector.
The screen remains black and the monitor stays in stand-by mode.
Did I just ruin my cable? This sucks LoL
Do I have to remove these pins on both ends of the cable?

I'm attempting this now.
Hope it works...
Any more testimonials anyone?

So at first I had managed to bend both of those pins pretty flat on the bottom, but no display came up on the monitor so I figured it wasn't making a secure enough connection or 2 the pins were touching eachother and shorting it out somehow. I smoked a couple of bowls and played with it while watching football and finally got them to break off at the bottom of the pins. I connected it again and still no display. Turns out I had to reboot for Windows 7 to display on the monitor again
So for anybody attempting this, it DOES work, getting those 2 pins out is rather difficult without bending the others but I managed to bend them all back into place and it works perfect. My 1 problem with Windows 7 is now history. Thanks
P.S. This can also be done by removing 1 pin from the monitor's VGA cable, but obviously it's better to use the DVI adapter and at least then you only risk destroying a $6 item.

|chicken-||I attempted this on a DVI adapter but I couldn't get the pins to snap out. One of them I bent back and forth and it broke in the middle, but can't get the damn things out|

|Hollowman8904||Pretty much if you dont run and LCD at the resolution it should (weather above or below) the pixels its being told to display wont match up with the pixels it actually has, resulting in a blurry image|

|SoaDMTGguy||UPDATE: I just tried it again. The mod works, but my monitor just canâ€™t go above 1024 on the horizontal.|

|fro_dave||Yeah I know why its blurry, its because the LCD doesnt actually have the pixels their to display them.|
