Can i attach an HP 2009m monitor (mine) to a Dell laptop (work provided)? 
Monitor has  power cord and a 15-pin serial on both ends cord. Is there an adapter that can be obtained to make one end USB?

Thank you for posting on HP Support Community.

 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:  

Computers and TVs have a wide variety of video connection types. The video connection on your computer must match the connection on your TV or monitor.

note:If your PC only has DVI and your TV does not have a DVI port, you can use a special adapter or converter cable.
  1. Select a connection type based on your second monitor.

    • Monitor: VGA or DVI cable

    • TV: Video (composite) or S-video cable

    • High Definition TV: DVI or HDMI cable

  2. Connect the TV or monitor to the computer using the cable you chose.

  3. Connect a power cable to the TV or monitor, and then turn it on.

  4. TV connections only: Change the TV video input source to match the video source connection from the computer (Line-1, Video-1, HDMI, etc.). Refer to documents that came with the TV for instructions.

    Depending on the TV, the image quality might not be as good as that of a monitor.

  5. Turn on the computer.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
