Question: Thank you very much for your response. Is this KVM 2 port device easy to use? How do I connect the 2 computers, keyboard, monitor and mouse to it?

Question -
I just purchased a new computer system. I would like to know how to attach my old hard drive to my current system so that I can choose between which hard drive to use with a single monitor, keyboard and mouse. Would this be possible? If yes, what would be the steps taken?
Answer -
I am a little confused by your question. When you say hard drive are you talking about the storage device inside your computer or are you talking about the whole computer minus the monitor? I here people call the computer the hard drive every once in a while but that is incorrect terminology and is quite confusing. If you want to use 2 computers with one monitor and mouse etc, then you need what is called a KVM switch. They are about $40 on the internet. Go to google and search for KVM 2 port and you should find plenty of deals.
Answer: They are very easy to use. You plug the keyboard mouse and monitor into the KVM instead of the computers. Then the KVM should have 2 sets of cables. Each set goes to one computer. Then you press a button on the KVM to switch between which computer you are using.
