  1. this is a pretty noob question but oh well

    Is it possible to join two computers together someway to get them to work on the one screen?

    Have two pictures on one screen at the same time? No.

    You can get a tiny box called a "KVM swich" that lets you switch any of keyboard-mouse-video between two computers.

    wat i mean is, kinda like joining your computers together in 'SLI' so they work together.

    Oh. That depends on what exactly you want to do. No, you can't run WIndows XP on two computer at the same time. Yes, there are some tasks that you can spread across several computers (almost all of these have to be done on Unix-like operating systems of course).

    but like said.. no you cannot hook 2 different computers to 1 monitor and get them to both show up on 1 screen.. You would have to have a digital LCD flat panel that had the capability to let u use 2 inputs at once and it would be TOTALLY up to the monitor if it would allow split screen.. I dont even know if one exists
