Hi I have 2 PCs connected to 1 monitor via a VGA switch and I now need to connect a 3rd PC in the same way , each PC has their own keyboard and mouse so they only need to share the monitor, I have searched the net for an adapter with 1 female x 2 male connections to 'split' the cable from the monitor to 2nd PC thus giving a 3rd connection but can only find 2 male to 1 female versions ( 2 monitors to 1 PC) any ideas please?

I use 1 monitor, 1 keyboard and 1 wireless mouse connected to two computer's via a D-Link KVM switch. While its not the answer you want, there are a few possibilities on YouTube, for a possible set-up arrangement.

Taking the two suggestion links, I have used both. The version shown in the second link, might have a 'feed-back' problem, depending on circuitry in the unit. I prefare the units in link one.

Usually get mine from eBay and direct from China (from 1 to 3 weeks wait)at much cheaper prices than similar units from the likes of Maplins. Amazon were selling some of these recently on special offer with free postage and next day deliver?.
