Ok, connected up to another HD device with the Belkin cable, so HD to DVI connection, the TV/Monitor did not pick up the signal at all, so still unsure if it is the cable or TV/Monitor.

Verify you have selected the correct input on the monitor.

Check the pins on the DVI end of the cable. Make sure none are bent.
With a new cable, if you have no bent/broken/loose pins, the more likely bet would be a failed monitor.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

I had checked the input and it is a new cable, so it must be the monitor.

Thanks for the help.

No problem. Here's hoping the next one pops right up without any issue for ya.
