    I run a dual monitor setup and recently while playing a game my second monitor shut off and gave me the “cable not connected” message. It is plugged in hdmi to hdmi in my graphics card but says cable is not connected. I tested the cable with my first monitor and it works so idk if it’s the hdmi port that’s not working or how to fix it. I have restarted my pc multiple times same with switching out the cable. Any help is appreciated!

    Hi and welcome to TSG.

    Can you connect the known working monitor to the suspect graphics port to test ?
