I also hooked up the PC with out the KVM switch thinking I had a bad KVM and the pc still boots up with the same error.

Hi canturob,
When a system reports a check sum error the bios is telling you the information stored from the last working boot does not match the current settings stored in the bios. Please power down your MSI system, unplug the power cord. Open the case & clear the bios. Location of JBAT1 on page 3 in manual.
Clear CMOS Jumper: JBAT1 page 10 in the manual. Remove the battery/cmos. Check it's voltage with a volt meter. It should test to 3volts DC. Anything less & the battery needs to be replaced.
While in the case re-check all data cables & power cables for good connection.
The MSI board uses the Award bios. Your current beep code of 1 long & six short is not a common beep code for the Award bios. See bios beep codes here: http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm

If the battery checks out ok, you may need to update the bios. Go to MSI: http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=utility&maincat_no=1&prod_no=205
To update your MSI bios (Option only if bios clear fails to resolves the check sum issue).

Good luck canturob!
Mike

My compaq presario sr1000 computor won't stop beeping from the inside and it says no signal on the monitor


1 short beep and 1 long beep means its a memory problem.
Shut down your computer, then open your computer case and replace the memory module.If you have 2 or more modules ,try starting the pc with one.If it fails, try a different single module.

2 short beeps and 1 long beep repeating for 5 times means its a graphics card issue.
Shut down your computer, then open your computer case and unplug the graphics card, then plug it again.If this doesn't help, try with a different(confirmed working) graphics card.

My computers seem to have become somehow linked by the KVM switch


The GCS632U is just one KVM switch. But if you're going to check it out, it has actually two separate connections.

It will just switch once you toggle from one computer to another.

Try to power cycle the KVM switch.

1. Shut off both computers.
2. Disconnect the KVM switch from the computers. (make sure that not even a single cable is connected to the computer, even the audio).
3. Leave it disconnected for 10 minutes.
4. Reconnect the KVM and boot up the XP first.
5. Boot up the Vista, try to toggle from one computer to another.
6. LASTLY, shut off the Vista and see if same problem will occur.

If you get the same problem, then you need to contact IOGEAR and have them RMA the device. Because this is the first time that I heard of this problem.

Thank you and good luck!

When powering up I get 2 short beeps and one long one.


The beep code is signifying either improperly seated/ bad ram or improperly seated/ bad video card. Since you replaced the RAM I would say it would be a bad video card. Replace & reboot. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Kvm switch won't stay on second computer, switches back


You might try disabling any power saving schemes in use on either computer. The KVM (I believe) gets its power through the ports and one computer may be shutting down power.

Cannot switch between PC's


Typically, the KVM indicator light will only light up on the connection that is currently active. The indicator light will switch to another connection when that connection becomes active. First I would make sure that all the mouse and keyboard connections are secure. I have seen where these sometimes pop out, and thus some componenty will not work. I would then make sure that all the computers are fully powered on. The KVM will not allow you to switch to a device if it is not powered on. The KVM may indicate that a connection is down by a blinking light if you switch to a port and the connection is not up. It sounds that you have atleast one good set of cables. I would confirm that the other sets of cables are good as well. Do this by swapping the other cables with the one port that you know you have working. Finally, with a set of good working cables, swap them over to the other ports on the KVM switch. Although it may be improbable, you may have a bad KVM. AS always, I would review the product manual here: http://web.belkin.com/support/download/files/P74711ea_F1DJ10x_man.pdf And, since this is a new product, you will also be entitled to free tech support from Belkin: http://web.belkin.com/support/phonenumbers.asp?pge=bro 1-800-2BELKIN x2263
