First computer windows xp

second computer windows 7 

 

Right i bought this KVM switch in the hopes that i could hook up 2 computers to the one Monitor and im having an issue when everything is plugged in.. that the monitor wont turn on

Its windows 7 and XP are the computers I think the problem is because of THIS i.imgur.com/x8Dn6Vh

Is that the reason everything isnt working correctly? ..to my understanding its not standard vga port because its not blue whereas the xp's machine is blue

Is this the KVM?

 

Do you have the USB cables plugged in?

That's most likely the issue.  The KVM probably gets some power off of the USB.  You should connect the VGA and USB on both machines, the sound should be optional, and then the keyboard and mouse should connect to the KVM.  Normally there is a key combination to switch between machines.

I don't think it is a DVI port, from the picture it looked like an HP video cable and if it is what I'm used to the connection on the computer is just all pins.  It looks like a DVI port, but it is actually different.
