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.
The unit comes with all the cables in order to connect up to four computers to one KVM switch. If you're only using two computers, then you'll only need to connect one computer to Computer 1, and the second computer to Computer 2. The KVM will recognize that only two devices are connected, and generally skip the inputs for computers 3 and 4 until they have a device connected.
A KVM switch just allows multiple computers to share one keyboard, mouse and monitor. It doesn't allow the connected computers to communicate with each other. So no, it won't allow you to transfer data. If you want to do that, you'll need to connect the computers via a network (through a 4-port router, for example), or use the old-fashioned method of transferring files manually using a flash drive.
This is a common problem with KVM switches. To isolate the problem, here's what you need to do:
1. First, connect the keyboard and mouse directly to the problem
computer to ensure that the keyboard and mouse works correctly while
being directly connected.
2. Swap the connection of two computers. If you're having a problem on
the computer that is connected to port 1 of the KVM, connect that
computer to port 2 of the switch or just swap the connection. If the
problem recur on port 1, then there's a problem with the keyboard and
mouse cable on port 1.
3. But if you're not able to duplicate the problem on port 1 or 2,
disconnect the KVM switch from the computers, leave it disconnected for
4. After 5 minutes, reconnect the KVM to the computers and reboot the computers.
5. If same problem occur, then contact the manufacturer of the KVM and have them RMA the device.
If possible directly connect the KVM cables to the laptop computer. Try to avoid connecting the KVM cables to a docking station. Also if your KVM has manual port selection buttons on the front of the KVM try holding that button for about five seconds when switching ports.
Hit scroll lock twice quickly (within 2 seconds) then either "1" or "2" to select the input you want. I needed to remember how to do this myself today since I haven't used this KVM in years, having replaced it with a 4-port ages ago.
Sounds like its not detecting video on the 2nd port. Have you tried switching the computer on port 1 to 2 yet? If the problem moves then I would suspect that computers video card or the cable that connects it to the KVM.
