Most new can now a days. In any case, took a quick look at your specs and simply connect to PC. Then choose input from TV. Like VGA, HDMI, depending on cable paring you choose for your PC video card. VGA is usually the easiest.
The touchscreen function is handled via a separate cable (you did not state the monitor model number). The VGA cable is only for providing a picture. There will be a second connection for a serial cable or possibly USB to provide the touchscreen input.
if your monitor came with a disk try installing the drivers again you might still have the drivers for the previous monitor you had with your system if not try going to the manufacturers website and getting the drivers and install them
First, Shotdown your computer from start ,

IF NONE worked, YOU may have LCD that need drivers from manufacturing, some newer models required that, Specially for vista.You may use older Monitor to get drivers to computer and extracted, then you may connected, you will have solved the problem.

Step 1. Connect the video cable and turn on the computer. What happens?
the monitor screen remains blank (no startup screens or onscreen
display messages), the monitor must be connected to another computer
using a different cable to determine if the monitor is bad. Skip to the
Step to connect the monitor to another computer.
If the monitor is capable of displaying boot screens but is unable to
display Windows, use the following steps to set the computer to a
the native display resolution for your monitor in the User Manual or in
the product specifications for the monitor model. If you are unable to
find the native display resolution for your monitor model, temporarily
use 1024x768 for troubleshooting purposes.
Turn on the computer and press the
key repeatedly when the first startup screen appears.
If you are using Windows Vista, select

, and wait until Windows opens. Continue using these steps to set display resolution.
If you are using Windows 98 or ME, select

The screen should blank out temporarily and come back.
If you are satisfied with the new display settings, click
on the Monitor Settings windows. If you are not satisfied or if the
screen just goes black, wait: Windows sets the screen back to the way
it was before. Try another setting until you find a display
configuration that is compatible with the monitor and meets your needs.
the native resolution is not available, download and install updated
video driver software for your computer. Updating the video driver
software can add more resolutions (graphics modes).

Step 2: Connect to another monitor

video. Turn on the monitor and the newly connected computer. What

original computer to another monitor that works to update its video
If the monitor remains blank, repair or replace the monitor.
no vga input message means that the monitor is working fine, and the problem is probably your pc. check the cable connecting the monitor to the pc. if that is ok, you ma have to open up the pc and check some components, most likely the RAM
Your HP notebook PC probably has a VGA (aka HD-15) connector. Check page 16 of this PDF to make sure - connector #2 is the VGA connector.
Your Compaq monitor also has a VGA HD-15 connector, so it should plug directly into your laptop's port after unplugging it from the other PC.
You will still need to plug the Compaq monitor's power cable into a wall outlet for power.
If you are going to share this monitor between your notebook and the other PC, you may want to consider purchasing a Keyboard-Video-Mouse switch (known as a "KVM switch") - there are many different models - you will need one with VGA, and whether you need USB or PS/2 keyboard/mouse connections depends on what your other PC's keyboard and mouse are.
