Yesterday, when I went to turn on my computer, it said that no displayport connection was found, so I restarted the computer and it worked again so I thought nothing of it. Today, when I was watching a video, the screen went black but the monitor and computer were both still on, so I turned the monitor on and off and it worked again. Is there something wrong with my computer. Thanks!

If you can connect your computer to a another monitor or television set this way you can rule out faulty monitor.
Install latest version of graphic card driver.

When I checked the cords connecting the monitor, I saw that the power supply cord was not pushed in all the way. Could this have been the problem?

If it was power issue your computer would have not power on in first place.

I meant the power supply for the monitor not the computer. Nothing else seems to be going wrong so I might just be paranoid.

Ok thanks! Also my NVIDIA drivers are updated to the latest drivers. My graphics card and monitor are both only 3 months old.
