    Unplugging DisplayPort cables while monitor on and running. Damage?


    So today I started my computer up and only 1 of my 3 monitors working. Nvidia control panel claimed my gpu could only support 1 monitor which was false. What fixed it for me was I simply unplugged the 3 displayport cables for my 3 monitors and plugged them back in.

    My question is though is how safe is it to unplug these cables while the monitors are on? Only the center one actually displayed something while the others had no signal but the center one was still pulled out. What kind of damage can it do?

    Can't damage anything, at worst you'll have to restart computer for it to display again.
