Have you checked whether the graphics card has become unseated slightly? I have had computers work, but the GPU became slightly unseated, and it caused similar issues. Especially when, like mine, it is held in by a single strip of plastic.

Likewise, check the cable is properly attached at both ends, both power cable and DVI cable, it's easy to look at them and think they are in properly but they aren't.
