Lost cable

The moving company seems to have lost one of our cables.  We tried to get our desktop working but nothing shows up on the monitor.  We noticed a slot for another cable on the monitor and think that's the problem.  We have an HP 110-210 and an LG 20M37D-B monitor.  We tried ordering a cable from Amazon three times and it's not the right cable.  Help.  We need our computer.

Re: Lost cable

We got the cable and it is the wrong one.  It doesn't fit.  Please help.  We need to do our taxes and other pressing things.

Re: Lost cable

We know nothing about computers and monitors.  So we thought we needed 2 cables.  We took the monitor to a computer repair shop and the person at the shop said you only need one.  Then he pointed to a small round port that we hadn't noticed and said we needed a power cord.  He said it wasn't a common one and he didn't have one.  So I looked up the users 'manual and was confused at first, then went to Amazon and ordered the cord for our monitor.  I got it the next day and it works.  Thank you for your help even though it wasn't a CPU problem.
