Are these computers that are in the field laptops or towers ?
If laptops then its an easy workaround with no additional hardware or software.
If they are towers then find out what output options are on the video output card. If its onboard Video (part of motherboard) then we go a different approach.
If its a add-on card then there may be an "S" video output on it.
Most decent aftermarket cards have this option.(over $75) At that point you go into the video card applet software and look for "Clone Mode"
This will clone the screen image out the analog "S" jack right into your camera.(You may have to purchase a "S" to "composite" converter from radio shack since your camera may not have an "S" jack on it. $10-$15
(We do this everyday !!!)

If its Onboard video... then is the screen a CRT or an LCD panel.
If LCD... I think you will amazed at how good it looks if you just shoot the screen. If CRT then you will have to synchronize the fields to not get a "moire'" cycling effect.
But its been done with decent results.
