Belkin F1DG102U switch - problem with the monitor resolution

The monitor resolution is lower when docked laptop hooked on via the KVM switch. ControlPanel's Display shows max resolution which is still lower than when laptop connected to monitor directly. How to go about this issue? Thanks, A

    Exactly the same problem.
    Resolution from a laptop via the KVM is fuzzy to say the least.

    Please help !

SOURCE: I have a Viewsonic VS11531 27.5 inch monitor I use

In the link below, on page 9 of the PDF the maximum stated resolution of the KVM is Up to 1920x1440 @ 75Hz.

http://cache-www.belkin.com/support/dl/p75457_f1da116z_man.pdf

The monitor supports up to 1920x1200 @ 60Hz.

It sounds like there is an issue of synchronization between the monitor and KVM. This will force the monitor into a lower resolution to sync them. You may want to check with Belkin to see if there is a firmware update for the KVM. There may also be a driver issue with one(all) of the video cards on the system. I recommend updating the drivers on all affected machines with the monitor connected directly to the individual machines. Rather than using generic drivers, I would use the drivers downloaded from the manufacturer of video cards and from Viewsonic for the monitor.

Audio with KVM switch


Check that the audio-cables from the "other" computer to the KVM are not near anything "bad", such as AC adapter for the speakers, or close to any speakers.

If you temporarily connect the speakers _directly_ to the "other" computer, does the "noise" go away?

How do I hook up a Belkin 2-way Switch with Audio Support and Cabling?


kvm switches are easy, they just dont look it with the number of sockets.
hook up your keyboard monitor speaker mic mouse cables to the output sextion of the kvm just as if you were hooking them to a single pc.
hook the cables from the pc-s as if the kvm switch were the peripheral devices,
so that all the outputs from pc 'A' are connected to the relevant inputs on 'A' side of the kvm,
&
all the outputs from pc 'B' are connected to the relevant inputs on 'B' side of the kvm

KVM Monitor resolution out of frequency and will not display


Restart your system in a VGA mode (you will find this below Safe Mode, by pressing F8 before windows is loading) This way yours screen resolution will be at the very low frequency then you can change it back to the resolution you like. Eg. 800x600 or 1024x768. Remember to keep your Screen refresh rate lower like 75Mhz

Problem with laptop connection


KVM's work best when you are using the same or similar type of hardware however there might be an issue with your video card interfacing with the KVM. I would switch the Video cables and see if the problem moved or disappeared. If the problem moves, then I would suspect the video card is the culprit. Since many problems can be traced to software compatibility issues, I would check to see if there is an updated driver for your video card and or your monitor first. If the problem disappears it could possible be a loose cable connection on the destop PC or the KVM itself. I would also try a different set of cables.
