I have Dell desktop optiplex 9010 bought Dell monitor Dell S2415H to attach with it the manual links are as below;

http://www.dell.com/support/home/...y1/manuals

http://downloads.dell.com/manuals..._en-us.pdf

The cable that came with the monitor attaches to my laptop fine.

But not to Dell optiplex.

Tried VGA cable to attach to monitor it does not take it but fits fine with optiplex outlets.

Please help optiplex out of warranty Dell would not help.

Thank you

The vga should work, but you are better of using the hdmi...the optiplex does not have hdmi but display port...so you want a displayport to hdmi cable or adapter...https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matt...rt+to+hdmi
the image will be better than with vga.

yes, assuming the monitor came with an hdmi cable...but the cost difference is negligible and its just easier to work with a cable and not mess with the adapters.
