Re: HP Pavilion connection help !

Both are HP, the HP pavilion Tower model number is a6700F and the monitor is a HP w2408h
I hope that helps !
The big purpple plugs is on a cable at both ends and have plastic screws that hooks up to the back of the tower and the bottom of the monitor.
I guess I need to find out where and how to hook up the HDMI cable and the VGA cable's to?
