Sources for supplies that work include:

If you plan to use capes or add your own circuitry, higher amperage may be required.
Make sure that you have a grounded connection. This can be the USB cable or the HDMI cable.

USB Cables

This will normally be supplied with the BeagleBone Black, but in the case of the RevA4, it was not.
The connector on the board is a miniUSB type B female connector and requires a miniUSB type B male mating connector.
The original BeagleBone uses a miniUSB type AB connector.
