A display monitor needs some sort of input to drive the display. This can be a personal computer (PC). It can also be some other types of computers (midrange, mainframe), An external DVD or other media player, video game unit, or other source of input. There also needs to be a suitable and compatible cable connection to feed the monitor for it to work.
