    My son likes to switch the monitor input from his computer desktop to his XBox360 using the same DVI input on the monitor. When he is through playing one he pulls the DVI plug on the monitor and switches to the other. Can he harm the video card on the computer by doing this with power on? Can he harm the video card by leaving the computer on when its not hooked up to the monitor? Thanks for any advice.
