I have a switch (48-port - POE) , PHONES are connected to 40 ports and PC's are connected to 7 ports. Will 7 ports connected to PC's utilize POE.

Hey Sai

You will see logs if you exceed PoE thresholds or if you get a PoE fault etc.  PCs will not use PoE or won't try to negotiate with the switch to do PoE.

Does that help?  Or do you have more questions that I can answer

no, as your PC's do not use PoE

Not at all, the PoE handshakes start with a signature detection of about 25k Ohms to determine if the device at the PD end is PoE capable.  If no signature is detected, the port functions as a regular port.
