The SC switch is a Secure Switch for Goverment applications and or Military Ops, PS3 is therefore not a supported target. First of all because the Interface is most like HDMI owhich your switch doesn't support, the usage of adaptors are not going to work on that kind of switches.
Is your switch a SCxPDV or a SC4UAD? Regardless, if it's a DVI switch, you can try place a DVI-D cable in between your HP PC and the switch. Do the same between the switch and the HP monitor. I'm guessing you are currently using a DVI-I cable between the PC and the switch. Some video card/OS combo send out analog signal when you use a DVI-I cable on the PC, which would not be displayed if you are using the digital port on the monitor.

That switch is power activated - the kb and mouse are assigned to first one that starts and the second pc thinks that it doesn't have neither keyboard or mouse attached and freezes.
Before starting the second pc manually change the assignment.
When a computer first boots up the video card send a request to the monitor to find on what resolutions the monitor supports. If the video does not get a response the card will default to very low resolutions. The only way to avoid this problem is to boot your computers one at time and keep the KVM on the computer until it fully boots to a desktop. This will allow the KVM to pass the monitor information to the computer.
