I'm doing the copy of a broken disk with ddrescue on a machine. Without thinking i replaced the dvi cable with a vga and now of course the monitor output "no signal". There is a way i can get the signal to the monitor without doing a reboot?

thank you!

Turn off your computer and monitor. Unplug their power cables mobdro. Wait a few minutes. Afterwards, reconnect the VGA cable to the computer and monitor. Plug the power cable back, too. Turn on your computer and monitor and see if the VGA connection works just right.
