I 've got four PCs connected to a regular 4-way KVM switch, all connected to one ..... 26" monitor (using vga) + mouse + keyboard + speakers + mic.
In addition one of the PCs has a touchscreen monitor connected (VGA + Serial). I would like to share the touchscreen monitor with a second PC.
I think the following equipment will work but I'd like opinions from fellow experts as to whether it will work and what the risk is of damaging my video cards.
I have an old two way KVM switch which switches VGA and what were serial mice (not PS2). If I used this to switch the touchscreen monitor VGA and the serial controller, will I reget it. I will effectively be pulling vga & serial cables out of one PC and plugging the into another PC while they are on, which everyone says is a no-no.
