Is it ok to have 2 desktop computers turned on while connected to a 24m monitor.

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an HP 24m monitor for my 2 desktop computers.

One is connected using VGA and the other using HDMI.

My question is: Is it possible to have both desktop computers turned on at the same time, and switch between the individual output of each?

 

Thank you for any information.

@Jeff17866 I'm afraid you cannot have two desktop's connected to the same monitor, it just isn't designed to work that way,

There are 3rd party solutions available to resolve such concerns, however, HP neither recommends nor supports the same.

I already DO have 2 desktop computers connected to my HP 24m, I just don't turn them on at the same time.

 

I thought that maybe there was a function in the monitor where I could turn both computers on at the same time and switch between them.

I don't want to damage my monitor.

 

Thank you.
