Exclamation 3 CPU's 1 Monitor

Is there a device which allows me to hook up all three cpu's so, that when I toggle on/off, i can control which cpu I want to access ?

Thanks & Regards,

Do you mean CPUs, as in there are three CPUs on your motherboard, or three computers that you are trying to link to the same monitor?

2 posts leads me to think that he means 3 seperate machines.

3 CPU's that sound interesting. CPU=Central Processing Unit. PC=Personal computer.

if i got it right and you mean you wanna use the same mouse/keyboard/monitor with all 3 computers then its possible , youll have to buy a kvm switch (keyboard-video-mouse switch, you connect the monitor vga cable/keyboard/mouse to it and it connects to all of the other pcs and with a switch you select the pc you wanna work with, also be aware that some kvm's also have audio so you might wanna get one with it unless you wanna use diffrent speakers for each pc)

Definitely a KVM switch, you might want to get one with USB support as well, in case you have a keyboard or mouse that uses a USB port.

Anyone have a suggested KVM switch? There are a whole bunch of wacky ones.
