Can I connect two mac computers to a Viewsonic 2235 and switch between them

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.

Will video card Divice SiS 661FX support two monitors?

Please confirm what Video card do you have, it seems you have an Integrated VGA adapter, and it may not have option to connect 2 monitors. You might need to use a Video splitter (A device to use multiple monitors) to use 2 monitor.

Please let me know if this information is useful.

Your comments and ratings are highly appreciated.

Thank you for choosing Fixya

Connected power but hardly see the image all dark

Sorry about your Monitor problems.
I have worked on several of these monitors and yours sounds like the BackLight has gone for a walk. ( NG ).
If you are experienced in the disassembly and the electronic component repair, let me know, and I will walk you thru the repair steps.

The backLight for your unit, can be ordered on EBay or direct from Samsung.

This monitor does not come with audio correct?

Yes you need to purchase outside speakers & hook them up to your soundcard in order to get sound from your computer. Another option would be headphones. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Connecting 2 monitor and tv

Multiple monitors overview On many portable computers and some desktop computers (those with two video ports on one video card), you can expand your display to a second monitor by using Dualview. Dualview is very similar to the multiple monitor feature, with the exception that you cannot select the primary display. On a portable computer, the primary monitor is always the LCD display screen. On a desktop computer, it is the monitor attached to the first video out port.
Once you attach the second monitor and turn on your computer, use Display in Control Panel to configure your settings, just as you do with multiple monitors. Dualview can be used with docked or undocked portable computers.

Arrange multiple monitors To arrange multiple monitors
This procedure applies when two or more monitors are connected to one computer.
  1. Open shortcutcold.gifDisplay in Control Panel.
  2. On the Settings tab, click Identify to display a large number on each of your monitors, showing which monitor corresponds with each icon.
  3. Click the monitor icons and drag them to positions that represent how you want to move items from one monitor to another, and then click OK or Apply to view changes.
note.gif Notes
  • To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Display.
  • The icon positions determine how you move items from one monitor to another. For example, if you are using two monitors and you want to move items from one monitor to the other by dragging left and right, place the icons side by side. To move items between monitors by dragging up and down, place the icons one above the other. The icon positions do not have to correspond to the physical positions of the monitors. You can place the icons one above the other even though your monitors are side by side.

Problem in my samsung 17``(793s ) monitor

These are so hard to narrow down the problem with as these monitors are becoming obselete. You should replace it! If this is the type you want to continue to work with since they are not popular anymore you could go to a local PC store and purchase one at a very low cost! Or shop for one online!
