Question about the effects of a bad monitor cable.

Recently, the picture on my monitor would turn black for a few seconds occasionally. I determined that the reason why this was occurring was because the wire that connects the monitor to the video card was loose slightly and this was determined by jiggling the cable that connects the monitor to the video card. The wire seems to be loose around the back of the monitor and not by the video card..

My question is would the monitor cause any damage to the video card if I continue using the monitor for the next few weeks? I am not able to get a new monitor right now unless I could find someone that has a spare monitor around.

The cable probably has a simple break in one conductor -- this wouldn't damage the video card.
