First of all your pc must be the right O/S and secondly you must have 2 VGA ports to be able to use 2 monitors. And vista and win 7 are the only O/S to be able to do this easily. You can always get a VGA splitter. tho. Hope this helps

Install both computers withdual monitors


Ok, so the idea of this KVM is to allow two computers which are dual monitor enabled to share one set of dual monitors. This means that PC1 can output to two monitors at once and PC2 can output to two monitors at once, however you only have two monitors.
You should take two cables and plug in both to the dual display output on PC1 (if supported) and then plug them into 'A/B' Computer 1, you should then take two cables and plug them into the dual display output on PC2 (if supported) and plug them into 'A/B' Computer 2.
Now take two cables and plug one into Monitor A and connect this to one of your screens and plug one into Monitor B and plug this into your other screen.

You should see this in the diagram here: http://www.linkskey.com/detail.php?Productid=165

Only one PC can be used at a time.
To support this the back of EACH PC should have a graphics card with two VGA output connections like this:

  • you need 3 vga connector and 1 splitter to connect a dual monitor system.
  • connect one end of the vga connector to the pc unit and the other end to the input port of splitter.
  • now the 2 remaining vga connector connect to the output of splitter either of the port, then the 2 end wire you must connect to the input port ( pc service port ) of the 2 tv monitor. make sure you set up the right input either with the remote or at the tv unit to recognized the pc source.

You should have 2 video ports on the 8400 GS card. One is the standard 15 pin VGA port and the other is the DVI port. You should be able to use these ports on the card to connect dual monitors. If you use the video port integrated on the motherboard you will bypass the 8400 GS card. Here's a link from Microsoft about running dual displays:

The other issue is whether your monitors are DVI compatible.

Dell 410XPs + Dell 3007WFP monitor issues


Vinod,
That's quite strange as during system startup you should see the Dell POST logo as at that point the card is only running at VGA, and the monitor will support display at this resolution. If you connect with a normal single DVI cable the monitor should display at 1280x800 also.
Have you tried this? Also have you had this monitor working on another computer at all? What happens if you power up the 3007 with no video cable connected? It should cycle through the pixel test screens. If you are not getting that, and you are not getting the pre POST logo during powerup i suspect that it is a screen failure.

Dual monitors


You'll need a dual-monitor video card in your computer. The GVLM1928 is basically two monitors on a shared stand. Each side of the monitor has a separate video connection.
