I would like to know if it is possible to create a virtual Monitor into Windows and make that virtual monitor shows the DVI Signal input into the computer using a DVI input card, which would be sent by another computer.

What are you asking? You seem to want to chain DVI inputs through computers. The problem is sending that DVI to another computer.... – Griffin Aug 30 '13 at 3:52
Yes Griffin, i would like to chain DVI input if that's the way you see it. It would be incredibly easy to debug/repair other machine as the DVI interface is most probably the most popular out there, and also i would be able to send my server video output directly into a window. That would be a pleasure and it would be incredibly sharp to use. – Quardah Aug 30 '13 at 12:03
Also i am doing this because my Monitor DVI input died, and i don't want to throw away the monitor for such a little flaw :/ – Quardah Aug 30 '13 at 12:06
If you have another port on the computer you can get a splitter cable. Creating a virtual monitor makes no sense however unless you're trying to test software on dual monitors in which case you should already have dual monitors – Griffin Aug 30 '13 at 23:44
