Modern monitors and desktop computer use universal power cables, so you should be able to go to an office supply store like Staples or Office Depot or an electronics store like Best Buy and ask them for a monitor power cable. It will have a three-prong end to plug into the wall and a six-sided end with three recessed slots to plug into the monitor.
If you want to buy online, monoprice.com has grest prices on cables.
To clarify, you know that analog is referring to the VGA 15 pin video input, and digital is referring to the DVI video input, right? You can't have the digital video unless you use the DVI input, which requires a DVI output from your computer (and a DVI cord of course).
If you already knew this and you mean that it won't switch over to your DVI, then there could be several problems. Most of them being with your DVI signal source (computer). Try booting the PC with ONLY the DVI cord attached between the PC and the monitor. If you have a VGA cord plugged into either, UNPLUG IT FROM BOTH ENDS.
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:
you can purchase it either from the manufacture of the monitor
ebay(www.ebay.com) or best buy
its called the power cable
just tell the perdson you are purchasing it from that you need a monitor power cable.
I have this monitor currently and I ordered another one off ebay and I am also in search of another power supply for the one that I purchased. Since I alredy have one I know that the one that works with my current monitor is manufactured by a company in china called Linearty Electronics and this link: http://www.linearity.com.tw/EPmenu_LAD6019.html is to a spread sheet that list the model that was packaged with the 19" Balance Monitor. (or at least the one that came with my monitor). The model # for the power supply is LAD6019AC3 it's 15v DC 4A. The website gives no information about how to order it via them but they have a contact page that gives a sales email addy as well as hr and gen inquiries. I have sent an email today to see if they can direct me in the right direction to get a power supply for this monitor. Hint: If you got to the site you will have to change the language to english on the main page of the site since this company is a chinese company their site will automaticy come up in chinese except for the word english that the top that will convert the site to english. I will post another response if I hear back. I sent the email just a few minutes ago.
Contacted viewsonic about this issue- they suggested- have both dvi and vga hooked up to same machine. start with poweroff on both. power on monitor, then power on computer. when you see display coming from the vga, power off pc, then disconnect vga cable, turn off power to monitor, disconnect power cord from monitor for 5 + seconds, reconnect power cord, power on monitor, then power on pc.
If this doesn't work to get the dvi working, (as happened to us) we returned our monitor for a replacement, since it was still under warranty.
