Not able to use PC with Samsung HDTV using HDMI cable


I just bought a samsung 46' 6220 3D HDTV.
It is working Fine with the Digital set top box and if i plug in a hard disk direcly or a pen drive , everything seems working without anyflaws.

Now i wanted to connect my CPU with the LED TV. It required a HDMI port which was not present in the CPU so i bought a ZOTAC geforce gt610 graphics card which had multiple connectivity solutions , after installing the graphics card i connected the HDMI cable with the LED tv.

now the issue is whenever i am using my PC on the HDTV.
The Screen turns Black and it comes on after 2 seconds.
It continously keep on doing this , according to me there is a signal loss in HDMI cable as it happens mostle when an electrical appliance is turned on or off in the house whether it is a fan or a tubelight.
i have switched the HDMI cable on other ports on the HDTV still the issue is not resolved.

Then i tried to connect the TV to a laptop using the Same HDMI cable and the laptop was not connected to any power source and still when i switched on or off the tubelight just next to HDTV.
The screen again went Black.

So, i am quite confused that whether it is an issue with the power source or the HDMI cable(though i am sure it is the cable).

Please Provide me a resolution for this annoying issue & do lemme know if anybody else also had the same issue.

P.S :: the HDMI cable used here is Cheap one as i was told by the Vendor that it will work fine.
i just bought it for Rs.200. Also, suggest me if i need to replace the cable, which brand and model should i go for.

Thanks In Advance, Hoping for the Resolutin ASAP...
