Just bought this tower. I have looked and looked for where I need to plug my monitor into but cannot find anything close to resembling the monitor's plug. What do I do now. I cannot find anywhere on Hewlet Packard's support site to find a diagram of the back of this computer. My monitor has a blue plug, there's three rows of pins between the connectors.
Thanks for all suggestions and assistance.

If you have a LCD flat panel monitor, there is probably at least a DVI port you can use, beside the blue VGA port you are using now.
Look underneath the monitor where the blue end of the cable plugs into, and see if there is a white colored port with a bunch of holes. That is a DVI port. There may even be a display or HDMI port.
The back of your PC has two HDMI ports. The back of your PC's ports is illustrated below.
The video cable plugs into either of the ports labeled as #4.
Now if your monitor only has a VGA and DVI port, you can just purchase a DVI to HDMI cable of the length you need.
This one is a 6' cable for example...
If your monitor also has a HDMI port, just get a HDMI cable.
