there was a thread not long ago on this subject. If you have network card on both PCs you could use VNC (software) to view the other PC's screen.

Alternatively a KVM is the way to go.

I'd retry the kvm switch - cordless should not make any difference.

I've been using the Belkin kvm for about two years with a Logitec cordless mouse/keyboard and never had a single problem.

The switch was via the "scroll lock" & up or down arrow keys.

thanks for replies i will try them, regards my belkin kvm, it would pass commands to both computers regardless of it being switchable it became so much of a bind i discarded it,however i will have another go.
