    Hi Folks

    I have 2 base systems and want to use a KVM switch (2 Port).

    PC1: Main system is configured for horizontal span LCD via DVI and
    Monitor 1 via VGA.
    PC2: Low power P2P system connected to a small Monitor 2 (which I wish
    to remove).

    So I set up ..

    PC1 DVI to LCD also PC1 VGA Monitor 1 to KVM Switch
    PC2 VGA to KVM Switch

    I can switch the KVM to PC2 on Monitor 1 no probs but when I switch to
    PC1 Monitor 1 goes into standby although I can use the KB and Mouse on LCD.

    PC1 no longer allows me to set-up horizontal span. From display
    properties it can no longer see Monitor 2.

    Is there a solution for such a setup?

    Many thanks

    I use a KVM switch and both PC are VGA to the same resolution (and
    progressive scan).
