There should be a wire with a green end on it that connects to the back of the computer to your monitor. If you do not have one then you should go to your nearest electronics store to purchase one. Let them know your situation they will get the right one. It will plug into the port with the little headphones by it on the tower itself(should also be green).

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
