For some reason there is no power port in the back of the desk top how do I power it up

So I have a HP desk top 290-a0046 and it came with no power port in the back of it.   How am I supposed to power this on with no power port?

Hi:

 

That model PC does not have a traditional power input like most desktop PC's do.

 

HP Slimline Desktop - 290-a0046 Product Specifications | HP® Customer Support

 

It uses an external power supply much like a notebook PC does, so there is probably a small power jack to plug in the 65W external power adapter into.

There is a port with a line and three dots under it.  Is that it or is that the key board plug in?

Hi:

 

Yes, that is the DC power input jack.

 

A moderator needs to approve the image for public viewing, but I can see it.
