@Betty101

 

Welcome to HP Support Forum. Your machine has NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (3 GB) which has following ports at the back to monitors

 

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

 

Source:  https://support.hp.com/lv-en/document/c05367065

 

Other ports from Integrated graphics won't work. What is your monitor ?

 

Regards.

Hi,

 

As mentioned above, it has

 

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

 

That why I did ask what is your monitor, what is the model of your Dell ? Does it have one of the above ports ?

 

All above ports use digital signals and your Dell (must be very old) may only has VGA port which uses VGA which is analog signals. In this case a DVI to VGA adapter may help and you also need a VGA cable (it's normally light blue).

 

      DVI-I to VGA Adaptor ADA-DVI-DVIIVGA

Hi,

You still have not said what is your Dell monitor (I've got 4 Dell monitors in front of me right now, my monitors all have HDMI port) therefore I can't tell you other option(s) if available otherwise you can use option DVI to VGA adapter ad mentioned above.

 

Regards.

Hi,

 

Sorry this won't help, does that hard to read a label at its back close to its stand . I can't tell you anything more because I don't know your monitor. Please buy a DVI to VGA adapter as mentioned above. I actually have more than a dozen of them in a box and all of them worked before I pulled them out.

 

Regards.
