View Full Version : [ubuntu] Screen Corruption, New 5m DVI cable?

June 14th, 2012, 08:36 PM
I bought a 5m long DVI cable so that I could link up a second monitor at the foot of my bed too watch TV-Shows etc. but I'm getting a few seemingly random pink lines and other artefacts appearing on the monitor which at first I thought was interference but is it maybe the length of the cable? both the monitor and the pc work fine with a different (shorter) cable.

it's a pretty basic PC with a standard built in ATI graphics

many thanks in advance for any ideas
