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:

What do you mean your screen goes black. It is black to start isn't it? Does it come on at all?
If you meam you are getting a display, but it goes off, you need to check the power settings for your monitor, that are set by your PC. Click start, then control panel, then double click display. Then in the Dispay Properties window, click the Screensaver tab at the top middle.In the lower half of the page which opens, you can find power settings, and the rest is self explanatory. If this is not the answer to your problem, you need to give more detailed information.
One check you can do is to disconnect the signal cable from your monitor, and switch power on, and see what is displayed. You may well need a new monitor, but before running off to buy one, try to borrow one to connect to your pc, and also if possible, try to connect your monitor to another pc, or to a notebook/laptop.
