I have a Dell Ultrasharp 20" monitor which is capable of dual display. Here is the device: http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=320-4687
I want to hook up two different computers to it; both of them have DVI-D and VGA outputs. However, due to non-available of some cables/adapters I'd like to hook up one computer using a DVI cable--it is hooked up and working fine and use a VGA cable to output from the other computer to the VGA port of the monitor.
Is it possible to do, without harming any system? There is a switch in front of the monitor to show appropriate display. Thanks.
