I bought a new monitor Dell Computer Model D04S Refurbished

Customer Question

I bought a new monitor for my Dell Computer Model D04S Refurbished #10071033085 bought in 2013. The new monitor is Dell U2414H. The monitor says it needs a "Display Port Cable". What do I need exactly? Is it even possible to get this new monitor to work on my older computer? Pat Poland

It seems like you are offline now,when you are back online could you please check on the back of the Dell PC whether it have a HDMI port or VGA port.i am sending the images of each with this so that you can identify it easily

VGA port

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The plug that my current monitor is plugged into looks more like the VGA picture. It has the two screws that hold the plug secure. To the left of this plug is another outlet that is rotated 90 degrees and has the label HDMI next to it. Would I have to pay you more if I sent you a picture from my phone? I don't think I should have to pay anything since it is a new Dell monitor I'm trying to hook up to my Dell computer.
