Windows 7: No picture when cable put back in

No picture when cable put back in

Hi. you might no that I am having problems with flickering and colours not looking like colours at times in games. Today I decided to take the DVI out of the card while I had a game on I inserted the DVI again into same DVI on the card and the screen flashed but no picture. I tried taking HDMI out also and same thing. I had to restart my PC and picture came back on and pc was fine. Is this normal to lose picture when taking and putting back in the lead or has it something to do with the HDMI?. .

It may be possible, you aren't supposed to remove those cables on a working computer.

Never remove any cable, connector, or card from a computer when the computer is powered up. Doing so can cause damage.

Will this cable work to extend coaxial cable for cable box?
Getting a new TV and placing it in a different spot than where the old TV is and I realized the coaxial cable coming from the wall isn't going to reach the new location for cable box's "Cable IN" connection. Can I use this as an extension? It looks right to me but I just want to be sure.
