    Ok so about a week ago I noticed that my VGA cable was acting up, whenever I touched it, the signal would cut completely, even though it was tightened, now, at random times I get "No Signal Detected" on my monitor, I can hear sound for a bit then it cuts out, I don't think my card is overheating, on Speccy it's usually around 50 degrees C and the fans sound fine. When I start up after the OS loads I get a bunch of black bars that fade quickly, is this a serious problem, or can I fix it easily? Any ideas?

    Edited:

    I have an Radeon HD 6850, the signal is now cutting out every time I turn on my computer

    The cutting out on start up has stopped but it's still doing it every so often

    Sounds like a bad cable, try with another one. Also your monitor and graphics card both support DVI cables, there's no point in using an analog VGA cable unless it's the only option.

    Bad PSU? Or maybe the power cable going to the GPU?

    When you move the cable it cuts out but the cable is tight? Sounds like your GPU is loose in its slot
