To start off with the bad news, the following handy product will run you $380.

The KVM Console to USB 2.0 Crash Cart Adapter is a small device with a USB plug on one end and both a USB and VGA cable on the other end.  The package also comes with a USB to PS/2 adaptor and a small flash drive with the program that needs to be installed on the laptop or computer you will be using to control the headless computer.  There is no software to be installed on the computer you intend to control, so even if you just met it for the first time, the Crash Cart should work.  It supports Windows, Linux and Apple machines and can give you access right at boot, to allow you to enter the BIOS of the machine you are controlling.   There are a lot of features for controlling, changing display ratios and more; which you can see on Big Bruin.

“I can see the KVM Console to USB 2.0 crash cart adapter as an invaluable item in an IT professional’s tool kit, providing an easy way to access terminals, industrial computers, headless servers, and other applications where you might not keep a keyboard, mouse, and monitor installed at all times.”
