I bet the monitor came with (if not, you will have to get one) a cable that is to go from your computer's USB port to the monitor. It's not a VGA or DVI cable for displaying pictures on your monitor. It's a separate USB cable. Once you hook it up, you will be able to use the USB ports on your monitor.

It should take a standard USB cable (square end goes into monitor, flat end into computer). You can get one from just about anywhere for a few $$.
