Thanks for all of your help in advance. I received a monitor from a friend who claimed it didn't work. I said okay and left it there for a couple of months. I found it a few days ago and I found out what the problem is: it was the power cord.
I went on a little excursion through my electronic and computer equipment to find that I did have an adapter that would work: a Toshiba power adapter. Let me give you the specs of each.

(I will skip the input specs.)
Microtek 815C Flat Panel Display Monitor
Are these compatible? Will anything happen to the monitor or the adapter? Will my house catch on fire?
Thanks so much!
