Two Computers one LCD TV
« on: August 27, 2008, 05:00:14 PM »
Hello All,

I tried to do some research but couldn't find anything for my problem.  I have two computers that I need to be on one LCD TV with split screen.  From what I hear, that is possible.  The other thing is that I need is that one keyboard and mouse to control both computers on one screen.  Does anyone know any program that could do this?  The computers both run off windows xp.  Thank you any advise or links would help.

Step 1
If you have a Windows computer, see if your current video card can support dual monitors. (Read Microsoft Knowledge Base article 182708 at support.microsoft.com.)

Step2
If it can't, buy a monitor switch box and connect both monitors to it. Or buy a new video card that has dual monitor ports.

Step3
If it can, buy and install a second video card. Read "How to Install a Video Card," for installation instructions.

Step4
Reboot the computer.

Step5
Set preferences for your new monitor in the Display control panel under System Preferences (Macintosh) or in the Display control panel (Windows).

Thank you
