VGA cable causing resolution issue

cabletroubleshootingvga

I recently bought a new VGA cable. When connected, Windows 7 detects my monitor as a generic plug and play monitor. The resolution goes bad with the screen blurred. This problem disappears when I connect my original VGA cable. Also Windows 7 detects my LG monitor correctly in this case.

I am pretty sure it is something to do with the VGA cable but have no idea what could be the possible issue.

Any pointers would be very much appreciated.

The new VGA cable is probably bad. VGA is analog so it's possible to get a partial signal even if part of the cable is broken. Get a new VGA cable, the one you got was likely junk.
