Belkin provides software that allows hotkey setup for these KVM's, as well as the USB and DVI FLIPS. see the site, or download here http://www.belkin.com/support/article/?lid=en&pid=f1dg102w&aid=5874&scid=219&fid=2500&fn=flip_10214_82206.exe

How can you switch over to different computers with the Scorpius -p7 trackball keyboard?


If your keyboard and this KVM Switch are both PS2 (from the picture I see the KVM Switch is PS2 and from the Internet searching for Scorpius -p7 trackball keyboard I see it can be either USB or PS2) the connections are straight forward.

Usually a 2 port KVM switch uses keystrokes to make the switch, they are usually "Scroll Lock" or rarely "Num Lock" -- press the key 2 times with about a second or less between presses. You may hear a BEEP from the switch indicating "it's hearing your request."

Good Luck

Belkin Flip PS/2 - KVM switch - 2 ports how do i switch from pc to pc on key board


The instruction below the link is for a 2 port version KVM, and may not apply to your particular model. You can look your model up here:

http://en-us-support.belkin.com/app/product/list/q/kvm/session/L3NpZC9BSk5yVUZKag%3D%3D


You can switch directly to any port by entering the Switch port number you wish
to use. For example, if you press “SCROLL LOCK”, “SCROLL LOCK”, “2”, the
computer on port 2 will be selected.

AutoScan Mode
In AutoScan mode, the Switch remains on one port for eight seconds before
switching to the next. This time interval cannot be changed.
To enable AutoScan mode, press “SCROLL LOCK”, “SCROLL LOCK”, “S”.

I have Belkin 2-port KVM switch. 1. The monitor now has a yellow tint. Not clear. 2. No hot-key combo works. Solutions?


1. you should check that the monitor lead is inserted correctly and that there are no bent / broken pins in the end of the plug. If so you would need to replace that lead

2 would require that you check all your connections and if you are using PS2 type connections then really do check they are in the correct places.

belkin and many others in that price range vary in performance. You may also find that if your keyboard has special media keys or other wonderful functions, they might not work and this a problem inherent in all low end KVM's

Belkin 2-port 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.

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.

KVM switch mouse trouble


Does a mouse work if plugged directly into the laptop? Sometimes you have to change a laptop in the BIOS to allow a PS2 mouse in addition or instead of the touchpad. It may not be recognizing the KVM as a mouse. Try plugging the mouse right into the laptop and see if that works.

Problem with Belkin OmniView KVM F1DS102P


Is the LED for position 1 and 2 always on? If the switch doesn't detect power on the PS2 keyboard connector it won't let you switch to to that position. If you are using a USB mouse with an adaptor or a wireless mouse try a conventional PS2. I have a MS wireless mouse one of my switches does not like and have to resort to that sometimes. Another issue could be excessive cable length or PS2 extension cables. Let us know if you have any more questions on this topic and please don?t forget to rate the post.
