Hi PinCushion!

You can have two computers hooked up to the same monitor. To do this you have to use what is called a KVM Switch, which stands for Keyboard, Video, Mouse Switch. You can find an example of one HERE, which is from the TigerDirect website. They are pretty cheap as you can see from this example, which only costs $19.99USD.
