Pah,

The purpose for each of the USB plugs are likely 1 for your keyboard and one for your mouse to each of the PCs you attach to your KVM

Hope this Helps

2-port KVM switch mouse & keyboard connected to wrong display


I have installed several of these KVM switches before... that's not normal. It sounds like there's a manufacturer's defect which is causing the video to link up with the wrong keyboard/mouse cables. If you just bought it, I'd recommend returning it and getting a replacement.

I have recently bought a KVM switch off ebay and have connected the two computers I needed to, upto the switch. The first time round the switch didnt work. To check the cables I shut down the...


Depending on the KVM (Brand, Model etc) there should also be a hot key sequence that will allow you to switch between the PC's. See if the hot key sequence works.
Also, is this a PS/2 KVM or USB ? In some cases with USB adapters you have to let the computer start up while it is set to that port. And if it is USB, does it also have a PS/2 connector? If it does, you want to use one or the other, not both. That can cause it to malfunction.

Belkin KVM STandard 9 pin mouse/keyboard to USB COnversion


You need to have the keyboard connecter (purple) connected to your computer in order for the KVM switch to recognize it. The computer is providing some power through the keyboard connector and this is what the KVM switch is feeding on.

If you have a USB keyboard, you may want to change your KVM for a USB compatible one. If you just want to use the KVM to switch your monitor, you may plug the keyboard (purple) connector of the KVM to your computer's keyboard PS/2 port and also connect you USB keyboard directly to your computer. It should work.

Belkin (F1DK102P) 2-port KVM Switch freezes


We have the same model and the same problem. The scroll lock combo did not work for us. You need to press Ctrl, Ctrl then up or down arrow.

The manual was a load of old Tom *** as it did not mention this.

KVM GCS1734 with microsoft wireless mouse/keybrd 4000


The MS keyboard & mouse receiver is effectively a USB hub with two devices connected to it. So, plugging it into the keyboard socket on the KVM switch may well work, depending on how that particular switch implements USB. If it just passes things through, it should be OK. On the PC side you should only need to plug in the USB cable from the switch's keyboard port.

Micrsosoft optical desktop 1000 to Belkin KVM switch


This is a common problem with a number of KVM switches - this model in particular. I have heard that the Bytecc BT-2000 connector will work in SOME cases: *5.99 on Newegg - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812101117 It might be worth the investment to give it a try, if you haven't already tried this. Bytecc does make very high quality hardware. However, if that doesn't work, there's really not much else that can be done, other than replacing the KVM with one designed to run off a single USB port. Hate giving bad news like that. It's a hardware limitation, I'm afraid.

Belkin KVM 2 port switch


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. Let us know what happens or if you need more assistance.
