Setting Up an All-in-One Desktop PC
In an all-in-one desktop PC, the speakers and system unit are built in to the monitor, so you have fewer things to connect—just the mouse, keyboard, and any external peripherals, such as a printer. This makes for a quicker and easier setup than with a traditional desktop PC.
- Connect the mouse cable to a USB port on the back of the monitor.
- Connect the keyboard cable to a USB port on the back of the monitor.
- Connect one end of your printer’s USB cable to a USB port on the back or side of your system unit; connect the other end of the cable to your printer.
- Connect one end of your computer’s power cable to the power connector on the back of your system unit; connect the other end of the power cable to a power source. Connect any powered peripherals to a power source.
