I have a VGA cable that I hook up from mac to the external monitor to make dual monitors. This used to work all the time but now when I connect them together it says "Check Signal Cable" what does that mean?

Your vga cable might have a problem is there another machine that you can test the monitor with?

that's the best way to determine whether the problem is with the monitor or cable.

That, or hitting some magic key on the Mac to enable the external output. (F7 on my old MacBook.) – Arjan Oct 7 '11 at 17:15
