Why can't I connect my existing monitor to my new Dell system?

Article Summary: No DisplayPort, HDMI or other adapter shipped with system

No DisplayPort, HDMI or other adapter shipped with the system.

Often systems are purchased as replacements for existing system installations that do not require a replacement of the LCD display. Due to changes in the default graphics ports on newer systems, it is often found that cables and/or adapters are required to make the necessary connections between the system and the existing LCD display.

Most systems today ship with DisplayPort or High Definition Multi-media Interface (HDMI) ports as primary video out, and may lack legacy Video Graphics Array (VGA) and Digital Video Interface (DVI) connections that are more familiar to most end users. In other cases, multiple display configurations are used and lack appropriate connections for the 2nd or more displays.
