Windows 7: External monitor maybe going bad?

External monitor maybe going bad?

My external monitor works but it just recently started doing something weird. It might be the VGA Cable but I'm not sure. It's visible enough that if you compared my laptop screen towards my external screen you would see this like tiny tiny tiny tiny (emphasizing tiny) like white flickers. Some what moving up and down the screen. It's like almost if your VGA cable was just slightly not all the way in. I've wiggled the cabled replugged both ends. Turned my laptop off, the screen off. Reset the screen settings. Everything and I still see it. Is my VGA Cable going bad or my monitor?

If you really want to be sure either take the monitor to a repair shop and try with a cable there or get another cable, I would try the former though.

What do you mean by former? Former answer? As in the first option?

Do you have a desktop to hook it to or do you have a friend that will let you hook it to their pc, to test.
