Hi, I wasn't sure if this goes here exactly, but it seemed like the right place so here goes:

I have a newer computer and an older one (about 2002 i think). Then I have 1 moniter in my room. Is it possible to hook both of them up to run on the same moniter?? If so, how would i switch between the two?

You could use a KVM switch.
Hook up the 2 computers, then one mouse, keyboard, and monitor, will service both of them.

I have the model from Trendnet it works great. The only part that doesnt work right is the software switching. But switching is easy enough by pressing the buttons on top of the unit.
