  I have a V600 V2 and i plugged an DIGITAL-VIDEO Flat Ribbon cable for DIGITAL-VIDEO connexion.
  during 3 days, i had freezes of my Vampire. I unplugged all other devices, like CFIDE, ethernet adapter, and so on. Boot with a simple install 3.2 ADF and same problem...
  Finaly i unplugged this ribbon cable en connect directly the DIGITAL-VIDEO cable to my Monitor and It works fine.
  Do you know this problem ? or any informations that explains that ?

Oups, sorry, i posted in a wrong section, if someone can move it.

Sounds like an issue with the cable. Maybe a short circuit?

yes, the problem is the Cable but it's bizare because the problem appeared about 20s after the boot. I don't understand.

Maybe it is interfering with other hardware, the moment it switches to a higher resolution, because of bad shielding of the wires.

Yeah these ribbon cables don't appear to have much or any shielding, likely interference.
