The monitor needs a power cord and a signal cable. The power cord is a standard 3-prong detachable cord just like the one on nearly every desktop computer and many other electronic appliances.

The signal cable may be one of two types, depending on your computer's video connector. The monitor has connectors for both VGA (a D-shaped connector with 15 pins) and DVI (a rectangular connector) inputs. You need a cable with whichever type of connector fits your computer.

You should be able to find the power cord at Radio Shack, any of the big office supply places, or retailers who sell computers. The signal cable may be available there as well, or you can order from a number of online vendors.

The monitor also allows you to plug in a USB cable from your computer so you can plug in USB devices like a keyboard or mouse. For that you need the same kind of USB cable you would use to connect a printer.

You can view or download a copy of the monitor user's guide at Dell's site here:

I think you answered your own question--the computer works well with other monitors, but not this one.
I would suspect that this one is bad.
You might try to do this: Start the computer in safe mode and see if your monitor is reacting to video settings that are beyond it's capability (although if this is the case it should tell you it's out of range).
If it works in safe mode, try resetting the resolution to see if it will work with the new monitor (I seriously doubt that this is the problem).

Verify all cables are secure, try reseating them. If the power led continues to flash, this usually means the power supply in the monitor is bad.

Remove the stand, look along the bottom edge - you will see two small slots, one either side. Poke something in the slots and wiggle slighly, the corner will come apart - then just pull until all the clips undo.
