I recently received a Princeton VL 1916 Monitor as a donation for my computer and it didn't have any cords with it. Should there be a power cord? How does it connect to the computer?

Hi and welcome

Yes, there should be a power cord. Plus a cord to connect it to your computer whether that be VGA or DVI.

Thanks for your quick reply Cheeseball. Now do you know how I might be able to acquire a power cord and VGA cord? Anybody?

Howdy, thenewmac, and welcome to TechGuy! Your Princeton needs an a.c. adapter like this one for power. The monitor can accept video input from either a VGA cable or a DVI cable. You just need to match the cable to your computer.

However, before you drop money on a 7 year old monitor, you need some assurance that it works, I think. I've seen way too many castoff computers and parts that either didn't work outright or were such junk that they weren't worth fixing, so you might want to clarify that point with your benefactor before you spend any cash on this.
