Yes, purchase a kvm (keyboard, video, mouse) switch. They are usually arranged as dual, quad, and eight. Just push a button and it cycles between them in order (toggles back & forth on a dual). Anything more than two is usually used on a server rack to control multiple servers with one keyboard, mouse & monitor. I use a quad myself. You can get one on ebay, staples, office depot, compusa, etc.

Why is my screen "snowy pink" when plugged into the dvi of my Viewsonic from my computer,

This is usually caused by a cable not completely plugged in on either end - computer or monitor. I would check that 1st. If not, try a different cable, that would be the 2nd choice.

My Viewsonic 2235 monitor only shows the desktop top on 70% of the upper screen. It was fine and I ran Paretologic. When I rebooted, the screen images are egg shaped or stretched out side to side. ...

If you have an Auto Adjust option on your monitor, press that and it should adjust the screen to the correct size.
The button should be on the panel or it might be a setting in the monitor settings itself.

Hope that helps

You may have failing DC filter caps in the power supply just like Viewsonic monitors you can see in my albums, you is about the same as 2235.
If you are not going to DIY you will be better off putting the money toward new monitor, estimate repair up to $100.

Blue power light is on but screen remains black

Common problem with 2235/2245 is failed capacitors in the power supply/inverter board combination. You need to get the P/N and names of the board since there may be more than one version of the assembly for the same model.
