Question about Belkin F1DK102U 2-port KVM Switch
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
In the link below, on page 9 of the PDF the maximum stated resolution of the KVM is Up to 1920x1440 @ 75Hz.
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.

What operating systems are these? Have yout ried hitting scroll lock 4x instead of 2x?
What brand/model of KVM are you using?
USB or PS/2?
