Run Win7 and Win 8 with two monitors, one mouse, sound and keyboard(8 posts)
You need a device called a KVM switch for two monitors with sound, something like this. http://accessories.us.dell.com....._pla_SO46.
Just Google two computer two monitor kvm with sound
Personally I use a 4-place x kvm for my XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 setup with 3 monitors. 2 for windows 8 (1 & 3), 2 for Windows 7 (2 & 3), 1 for xp (3) and 1 for vista (3) with the kvm switch on monitor 3. I have speakers for each computer separately.
If I got a simple KVM switch (most dual monitor KVMs are very spendy) and hooked it up to one monitor, would it not still work somewhat. Win7 would be main computer with two monitors. Win8 would be secondary and would only work with the one monitor.
Would this work? I probably described it badly.
