I have a desktop . The desktop is connected to a monitor. Now I got a 2nd monitor. I use the 2nd monitor to extend the displays. I have also got Dell 3100 universal docking station and a laptop. Is there a way to connect the desktop with 2 monitors and laptop so that monitors can be used either for laptop or desktop. OR is there any other suggestion.

Thanks
John

You can buy a KVM - literally a keyboard, video and mouse unit with pairs of cables for each of the three.

I'm neither selling nor recommending this product but it gives you an idea of the unit and its cost:- http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Aten-CS22U-2-Port-USB-Cable-KVM-Switch/191963846743?_trkparms=aid%3D555017%26algo%3DPL.CASSINI%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20151005190705%26meid%3Dc26b5b19d9fc4c0fa5df4311840694af%26pid%3D100506%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26&_trksid=p2045573.c100506.m3226
