Question about ViewSonic VA702b 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I use a KVM switch to allow me to use one monitor with two different computers. Sometimes when I switch from one to computer to another, the screen resolution on my ViewSonic monitor is wrong/off and I can't reset it to the proper resolution. A window pops up advising that the resolution should be set to 1280 by 1024 but this option is not listed when I click on the settings tab under display properties - the only two available are 800 x 600 and 1024 x 768.

What is the best way to connect 2 computers to this monitor


If you have two separate computers for different purposes, such as personal and work use, you may find it convenient and necessary to connect both to a single monitor. Many monitors have dual inputs, making such a connection simple. However, you might need a keyboard, video and monitor switch to accomplish this task if the monitor lacks a second input. Dual Inputs
Step 1 Examine the back of your monitor for the presence of dual video inputs, such as a single VGA and DVI or HDMI output.
Step 2 Connect the VGA cable to one computer. Plug the other end of the cable to the matching input on the monitor. Rotate the retaining screws until tight at both ends of the cable.
Step 3 Plug the DVI or HDMI cable into the back of the second computer. Insert the other end into the monitor's digital video input. Screw down the retaining screws if you're using DVI.
Using a KVM Switch
Step 1 Ensure both computers are turned off. Place the KVM switch on your desk where it is within convenient reach.
Step 2 Locate the video output port on the back of the KVM switch. Plug a VGA cable into this port. Plug the other end of the VGA cable into the monitor.
Step 3 Plug the VGA monitor outputs from each computer into the inputs on the back of the KVM switch. Tighten the retaining screws down for each connected VGA cable on the computers and the KVM switch.
Step 4 Plug the keyboard and mouse cables into their respective outputs on the KVM switch. Plug each set of keyboard and mouse cables from their ports on each computer into the matching inputs on the KVM switch. Plug each cable in sequentially to avoid mixing them up between machines.
Step 5 Double-check that the mouse, keyboard and monitor cables leading from each computer all correspond to the right machine. Plug the KVM switch's power cord into a nearby AC outlet or power strip.
Step 6 Turn the computers and monitor on to verify the connections are correct.

Required Items

  • VGA cable
  • DVI or HDMI cable
  • KVM switch
  • Power strip (optional)

Trying to set up 3 monitors in windows 7. using on board dvi to connect to one monitor and on board vga to connect to switch box (which then splits video signal to two vga monitors). can only get the dvi...


Sometimes it is difficult to answer a question without asking very basic questions. Using a DVI and a VGA ports will allow you to have screens with different things showing on them. If you use a splitter, the two monitors connected to the splitter will show the same thing on both screens. Is this what you want? I use a splitter at church to have Powerpoint on the main computer monitor, the program then shows on the screen on the wall and the TV monitor, as well as the second monitor at the computer. My splitter occasionally acts up, and I found that unplugging it and plugging it back in makes it work for another couple months. But a splitter for only two monitors is very cheap, no switch box involved.

With GC S62 2 port KVM switch, can I transfer data from one computer to another. If so, how can I do it?


A KVM switch just allows multiple computers to share one keyboard, mouse and monitor. It doesn't allow the connected computers to communicate with each other. So no, it won't allow you to transfer data. If you want to do that, you'll need to connect the computers via a network (through a 4-port router, for example), or use the old-fashioned method of transferring files manually using a flash drive.

I know i hooked everything up correctly, the mouse and keeyboard switch work just fine but, when i plug in the monitor the screen goes blank.


With the GCS632U is recommended that you keep the KVM focus on a computer while it is booting. For example if both computers are turned off you can turn computer one on and the GCS632U should stay on computer one until it comes to a desktop. This allows the KVM to pass the monitor information and that may help.

Dual Screens with a VGA connection


The easiest way would be to purchase a video card that has 2 vga ports on it, allowing dual monitor support. Here is an example.

Mouse and keyboard not recognized on second computer


Solution for the mouse. I have 8 KVM's. Most of my computers work with the KVMs. On 1 inland KVM the logitect and Microsoft optical mice do not work on one computer (but work with the other computers). They both are USB. I hook them up with a USB to PS2 adapter. If I use a ps2 ball mouse connected to the KVM the mouse works. All the Mice work if I directly connect them. Since I do not want a ball mouse I got a Frisby optical PS2 mouse. It works with all the computers on the KVM's.

I do not have a solution for the Keyboard yet. 1 computer (ASUS MB) on my trendnet or belkin 4 postion KVM does not recognize the keyboard.
