Re: Computer problems after installing automatic switch
It really upsets me that a product I bought from you messed up my computer and now you want me to spend more money to tell me how to fix it. The instructions that came with the switch states "free technical support" Please follow this claim and tell me how to fix my computer.

Make sure your keyboard and mouse are plugged into the right USB ports on the switch. If you plug the keyboard into the mouse USB port the hotkeys will not work! The USB ports on the KVM switch are labeled under each port, with a mouse and keyboard icon respectively.From the Quick Start Guide/Manual:
The Numlock hotkeys are listed as:
[Num Lock]+[-] 
Switches to output 1
[Num Lock]+[-] 
Switches to output 2
Auto-scans and chooses which ever port is connected.
Alternatively: Tap [Scroll Lock] twice to automatically switch between ports.
Note: I've never been able to get the Numlock key combinations to work correctly. I always just use double-tap [Scroll Lock] trick to switch.
If you get stuck with your scroll-lock and Alpha lock lights flashing, just hit [Esc] to fix it.
(Scroll down to "Quick Start Guide" and choose CS62U out of the drop down).
It is your harddisk bed indexing issue.
You can solve it if you can able to run "chkdsk /r' command
When you ower up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode .
Then go to start menu then type in run 'chkdsk /r'
then press "y'
then restart the computer then it fix error on harddisk.
but your computer is not start in safe mode then you need winxp bootable disk or recovery disk.
then boot your computer with that disk then go to recovery console mode then type in prompt "chkdsk /r'
Some times blue screen error comes when some software conflicts with os.
So uninstall recent installed software from computer if you able to enter in safe mode.
Your problem has nothing to do with the Operating System (Vista), it has something to do with the brand of your computer. I have similar problem before, I have Vista (Dell), but the time I connected another Vista (Sony Vaio), everything worked correctly.
This is what you need to do:
1. You have to make sure that you are using a standard USB keyboard and mouse.
2. Connect first the keyboard and mouse directly to the Vista computer to see if the USB ports of your computer are working properly.
3. You may power cycle the KVM switch by disconnecting it from the computers (including the keyboard and mouse) and leave it disconnected for 2 minutes.
4. Reconnect everything after two minutes and then reboot the computers.
5. Try using different USB keyboard if problem exist after power cycling the KVM switch.
If you have the PS2 mouse and keyboard (round plug-in) instead of USB this is an easy install. however if you have USB you will need adapters to make this work, but I do not recommend it since more problems could occur. If you have the PS2 ends first shutdown both computers. remove your monitor, mouse, and keyboard from your computer and attach them to the single end of the switch. Mouse goes to Green, Keyboard to Purple. Take the other ends and connect the first group to your first computer mouse, keyboard, and monitor (same colors as above) and repeat for 2nd group of wires on 2nd computer. turn the computers on. you should get display, keyboard, and mouse for 1st computer. after both boot hit scroll lock 2 times within 2 seconds and then arrow up or down key to change between computers.
There was problem at one time with IOGear KVMs not working correctly with the USB chipset on the Dell motherboards. This problem was resolved by using a USB hub between the KVM cable and the computer. The user could take the USB portion of the KVM cable and plug it into a USB hub and then take the USB hub and plug it into the Dell computer. That should help with the problem.
I occasionally have a similar problem with a couple of my KVM?s and I think it relates to the circuitry in the KVM that is supposed to fool the PC into thinking a mouse/keyboard is attached. Windows doesn?t see the mouse so it doesn?t load the drivers unless you force it.
What works for me is to just start the PC and switch the KVM to that PCs port and leave it there till the computer finishes booting. Then its safe to switch to the other port, probably not the elegant solution you were looking for but it works every time.
