i don't have a modem cable, my card is 128MB nvidia. don't remember what model it is, but i am 100% positive it has nothing to do with the connection and video card.

Try a different monitor from a different machine. Try original monitor on another computer.

First off ... if you didn't mess with your video card, then it most likely isn't the problem. When you removed the CPU fan and after you reinstalled it, did you notice any "play" in the Heats sink?

try this:
- replace the monitor cable
- take out the video card, clean the pins and put it back in
- push the RAM in a little more
