Which cable please!

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 21.5-Inch IPS LED HDMI VGA Monitor
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Please help!

I purchased this monitor:


HP Pavilion 21.5-Inch IPS LED HDMI VGA Monitor (22cwa)


A month prior to the delivery of this PC:


HP Omen 870-213w Desktop PC (256GB+ 1TB Hard Drive i7-7700)


I find now the cable and adapter that came with the monitor, will not fit anywhere on this PC. I just please need to know which cable I need to purchase so I can get use this long awaited PC. Too many options on the web, very confusing.


Thank you!!!

Below is the link to the user guide for your monitor.


I assume you only got the VGA cable (with the blue ends)?   See page 7


Below is the link to the product specs for your PC...


The graphics card it comes with, has several outputs but no VGA output (which the blue cable goes to).


Rear I/O connectors: Dual Link DVI-D + HDMI + 3 DisplayPort.


So...since your PC and monitor both have HDMI ports, you would want to purchase an HDMI cable of a sufficient length.


This one is 6 feet in length.
