You may need to adjust the refresh rate. You can do that by going to Control Panel>Display>Settings> then click the Advanced button, then click on the Monitor tab.
Are you talking about the power plug missing a prong or are you talking about the end of the monitor plug, that has 12 or so pins in them?
If you're talking about the power plug, that wouldn't be your problem.
If you're talking about the other cable on your monitor, are you sure a pin or such is broken? Monitors look like pins are missing from them. Different types of monitors have different amounts of pins. But if you know for sure a pin is broken, then yes... that can be the cause of your problem.
