    Maybe contact of power connectors is poor. Sometimes contact surfaces get corrossion over time which affects that. Try another connector.

    If that doesn't help prepeare for imminent vga-card failure.

    Ah ok. I'd recommend a cheap 2600 Pro or something, will do the job for your 22" with movies etc.

    Even a 2400Pro or XT would be well suited for that job and they're cheaper.
