No. A computer is not human, you cannot hurt it. You can smash it with a sledgehammer, it won't give a damn.

Not really. Hardware is pretty robust these days. A combination of hardware countermeasures (such as shutting down when overheating) combined with intelligent drivers will do a good job of stopping you from doing something really destructive.

I have heard of monitors being damaged by software, but that's ancient history, not anything recent. As far as hard drives, I guess you could spin it up until it overheats or something, but that's not going to be a quick kill.

In the driver, sure. You can write your own "driver" that isn't limited. But if there are hardware countermeasures in place, you can't do anything without breaking out your tool set.
