Ok. I've got a 46" flatscreen display for my monitor/tv (coax atm). TV works fine, never have a problem out of TV. I play Final Fantasy XI on it.
Every now and then (once a week, if that), the display will blink out in the manner of a video driver crash and come back a second or two later. It's not a driver crash, because I don't get the notification afterwards and FFXI doesn't crash, which FFXI has always crashed when the video card crashed (for me).
Past few days I'm seeing very very thin black lines appear for split seconds.
Today, playing a bit before maintenance, it started just happening, several times per minute. It doesn't matter which HDMI port on the TV that I plug into, and I'm pretty sure my Nvida 560 Ti only has one HDMI port. I can't get down there at the moment to check (recent surgery).
What's the likelihood that the cord is at fault here and (please please please) not my video card or new tv?
If you're not familiar with XI, it's a 10 year old game. It's not stressing a any fairly recent gaming card. Youtube videos are about as much strain.
I restarted my pc, all seemed okay, started XI again, played for maybe 10 minutes, and it started again. Closed XI, and it hasn't started again in the last 10-20 mins.
Spec'ing properly is a gateway drug.
