No but that's my point, there is nothing on the monitor! The monitor will I guess attempt to connect?
Then it'll just notify you with a full bright blue screen telling me that there's 'No signal detected!'
It's doing it with the old monitor that I had just disconnected to be replaced with the new one, and now neither are working. -.-
The thing is the old monitor that was connected before I disconnected it was working absolutely fine!
But now upon reconnecting it hoping that I'll just sort out the new monitor when I'm IN windows it doesn't work anymore, I have no idea...

You're probably going to have do a hard reset by powering off using the PC power button.
If the installation in progress is hosed, you'll have to start a new installation again.

You shouldn't connect/disconnect things while the PC is running except devices designed for that such as USB...

Normally monitors [back in the old days] can be swapped "hot," however, I have not kept up with today's technology.

I'll keep that in mind. I'll just re-re-install windows now.

Yea, i don't know, i just wouldn't do it anyway...
And would hot swap work during the Windows installation ??????
I wouldn't complicate/confuse an install with such a change ...

Why would you disconnect a monitor during the middle of an install.

Connect 1 monitor either to the motherboard or the video card if you have one.

If that doesn`t work, remove the video card and connect straight to the motherboard, making sure you have it set to the integrated graphics (iGPU) in the bios.

When you see the bios on the screen again, you are good to go.

Now re install windows.

Let me revise my earlier comment: I didn't mean to ok the hot-swap during any Windows installation.
The only safe hot-swap is simply to quick-test a monitor, a mobo, a video card - with another monitor to eliminate a cause or two.
The best way to permanently swap monitors is: after writing down present monitor specs listed in device manager, numb-down Windows to any so-so generic monitor, power off, swap monitors, power on & set device manager to the new [replacement] monitor specs. [The only reason to know the old specs is in case the old monitor is needed again temporarily.]
