I have been trying to get my new fully 'puter running... having some cable issues.

In this case... video cable issues. These are touchscreen cables, with integral USB connections as well.

I had one DOA right out of the box (no USB touchscreen functionality). Another one lasted about 4 days before it developed what is most likely an internal short and made my PC reboot every few seconds.

While I am waiting for more cables to arrive, wondering if it is just be, or do other people have cable issues in an automotive environment? I cant blame the first one on my pickup... it didn't work right out of the box. The second one... not sure... it might have lasted for years sitting on a desktop.

What are other peoples experiences with cables?
