    If you are only connecting a new Monitor it has nothing to do with what you have on your desktop.

    What is the connector in the last pic ?
    Where does it come from, can you show a pic of where the other end comes from ?

    In the third pic, you have a cable going to the DVI connection on the back of the monitor.

    If you are trying to use HDMI, you need to use the connection to the left of the DVI.

    Hi there. The power button is also the light. Dead center on the monitor and is not one of the five round buttons.

    I recommend you use HDMI to HDMI.
