    I have a new Samsung U70 USB Monitor.

    It comes with a split USB cable that the manual tells me is needed to be plugged into TWO usb ports on my laptop. This is because it is powered via USB and needs the "extra power" i.e. two usb connections.

    However, the cable was too short to reach two USB ports (they are on either side of laptop).

    So i managed to install the driver with only one usb plugged in anyway. It also now powers up (and seems to work fine) with just one USB plugged in.

    Could i damage it this way? Is it getting full power (maximum results) using one USB? Anything that could go wrong?

    Thanks in advance.
