IOGear GCS632U 2-port KVM Switch - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


Your computer is locking up because of a lack of memory resources. This is caused by having too many items in start up folder; virus programs are notorious for gobbling up tremendous amounts of computer power and leaving unit to operate at a crawl if at all. Get rid of all the junk you have running and you will be a happy camper.

You will need to update the drivers on the computer for the docking station. It will be the windows seven drivers or lack of them that is causing a failure to remap the usb ports that the wireless dongle is plugged into.

this is not uncommon. many kvm switches cannot work with those types of wireless mice. the reason for this is due to connection codes. these mice require a connection to secure the use with each computer. you can attempt to do this with your setpoint software. located in C:\Program Files\Logitech\SetPointP you will find the program CONNECT.EXE
run this to redo your mouse connection. i will however inform you that even if this works there is a large chance that upon switching to the next pc the mouse wont work and you will need to repeat this process with each pc switch everytime you toggle pcs.

rule of thumb. if the mouse is wireless don't use it with a kvm.

Hello.

From your description, sounds like your KVM switch is not a factor, but your network connection may be.

Select:
Control Panel
Adjust your computer's settings
Network and Internet
View basic network information
Local Area Connection
Properties
Configure
Power Management
(Uncheck) Allow this device to wake the computer

Hope this helps.

That sounds like it could be an internal problem. but i couldn't know without taking a look. If its new switch I would suggest returning, or RMAing it. I hope I could help.

Pretty straight forward. The cables that are attached to the KVM go to the 2 computers. The monitor, keyboard, and mouse cables connect to the KVM box.

If you have problems, let me know.

What operating system do you run on these computers.?

Try rebooting sometimes 2 or 3 times. You can also try plugging in a USB mouse while the KVM switch is plugged in. Then go to the device manager and try to detect the new hardware

I had the keyboard and mouse USB's in the wrong ports on the KVM switch. Mouse works in both, but keyboard only in one. Maybe??

frequency out of range = the resolution is too high for the monitor to display or the signal is so messed up that the monitor can't decode it.
Simple test: connect the pc which causes that message (the 7 one) directly to the monitor - if now it works without a problem from the first time then the switch is defective and will have to be replaced (it can't be fixed).

The GCS632U has keyboard and mouse emulation that may not work with all wireless combos. If your wireless combo is going to work the single USB connection would need to go into the keyboard port as that is the only port that will recognize the hot key switching commands. If the wireless combo still has problems then try using a USB wired keyboard to ensure the GCS632U is working correctly.

With the GCS632U is recommended that you keep the KVM focus on a computer while it is booting. For example if both computers are turned off you can turn computer one on and the GCS632U should stay on computer one until it comes to a desktop. This allows the KVM to pass the monitor information and that may help.

the GCS632U has keyboard and mouse emulation that may not function correctly with docking stations. To ensure the KVM it self is working correctly I would suggest plugging the single USB from the KVM directly into the laptop and see if you have the same keyboard problem. This will at least tell you if the KVM is working properly or not.

Try following the this link and see if it helps. It helps to explain how to connect the keyboard to the KVM since the keyboard port is the only port that will recognize the port switching commands.

Sounds like there's a bad connection on the second computer, may just have to plug another mouse/keyboard in.
(I sometimes use a wireless usb keyboard/mouse combo)

First, disconnect the KVM switch from the computer(s). Disconnect also the keyboard and mouse from the KVM switch, including speakers (if there is). Leave the KVM disconnected for 5 minutes.

Before you reconnect the KVM switch, make sure that the computers are turned off. Re-connect the KVM switch to the computers, and then reconnect the keyboard and mouse.

Turn on the first computer, followed by the second one. If you are still not getting any light indicator, then the KVM switch is dead.

You may contact IOGEAR through 866-946-4327.

Thank you for using FixYa!

The IOGEAR GCS632U is designed to work with VGA computers and monitors. Using the Mini DVI to VGA adapter is not guaranteed to work with this KVM switch.

The Mini DVI to VGA adapter can only convert the port, but it does not have an ability to convert the signal from digital to analog when it's connected to the KVM switch.

What you need to have is a DVI to VGA SIGNAL converter. Unfortunately, I don't have a model number handy, so I would suggest to contact IOGEAR, because I'm sure that they already have a work around with this issue.

Thank you and good luck!

The GCS632U is just one KVM switch. But if you're going to check it out, it has actually two separate connections.

It will just switch once you toggle from one computer to another.

Try to power cycle the KVM switch.

1. Shut off both computers.
2. Disconnect the KVM switch from the computers. (make sure that not even a single cable is connected to the computer, even the audio).
3. Leave it disconnected for 10 minutes.
4. Reconnect the KVM and boot up the XP first.
5. Boot up the Vista, try to toggle from one computer to another.
6. LASTLY, shut off the Vista and see if same problem will occur.

If you get the same problem, then you need to contact IOGEAR and have them RMA the device. Because this is the first time that I heard of this problem.

Thank you and good luck!
