    Get a KVM switch, then you can connect 2 pc's using 1 monitor and 1 keyboard and 1 mouse.

    Another option is to enable Remote desktop on the system without a monitor and then to connect to it from the other system .

    To do this you can use (Control Panel > System > Remote) on the system with no monitor and then (Accessories > Communications > Remote Desktop Connection) on the system with a monitor.
