Can I hook up 2 computers to 1 monitor using a vga splitter cable?

I have already tried to use a kvm switch,did not work. So I sent the switch back to get a refund,Now I am going to try to hook up my 2 computers to 1 monitor,I am not going to use them both at the same time. One computer will be off when the other computer is on.. So my question is will that work?

    Doubtful. The splitter cable is intended to connect two monitors to one computer, not two computers to one monitor.

    You need to get a monitor with two (or more) inputs and an "input" button that switches between them. These are pretty common.
