  1. Hello to all;
    I have a KVM switch unit with 8 computers to it. I have one monitor tied to the KVM swithd unit. The video card on each computer has a DVI and a VGA output. I have the KVM cables tied from the vga side of the video card to one monitor. Each computer is using a monitor on the DVI output of the card. I want to see the same image on the DVI and on the VGA output so I can see the same image on the monitor tied to the DVI output of the card and on the monitor tied to the KVM switch unit. When I turn on the computer both monitors receive the output from the video card but then the vga side of the video card stop sending the signal to the monitor tied to the KVM unit.
    Help.
    Thank you.

    Mirroring the video output is an operating system (or the graphics subsystem) feature. The video card drivers should provide that capability.
