    i didnt see any questions/answer pointed to the question as to what is your vga powered from. 1) is it xenarc or lilli or other. 2) is it powered from opus or other?

    Meddler, I just checked and I still get a shock from touching the cable and something grounded. The meter shows 45V DC. I blame it on where I live.

    Lawrence's post makes sense though. If don't have the monitor and PC grounded to the same thing, then something in the circuit will turn into a capacitor or even a fuse (pop).

I think it can be dangerous because if the two grounds aren't the same reference, then Vcc isn't what's expected either.
    Thats nice and all but we arent talking about ground loops, we are talking about floating grounds

    I think you missed the point where i said that i think it is a power issue becasue of the fact that when i removed the wire everything works without skipping a beat
