Re: 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.

I have iogear miniview kvm (gcs62) keyboard works but mouse conn does not. Mluse is usb mouse with ps/2 adapter. Direct connection via usb works. used to also work with adapter but having tried it with kvm...

USB mouse with PS/2 adapter is not guaranteed to wok with GCS62. This KVM switch is designed to work with PS/2 keyboards and mice only.

When the USB mouse with PS/2 adapter is used in a computer directly, it will surely work, because the USB port can give enough power for the mouse to work. And it can easily convert the signal.

Unlike in KVM switch, the switch serves as a bridge between the mouse and the computer. And the computer does not easily recognize the mouse.

I would suggest to use a regular PS/2 mouse. Or if you want to use USB keyboard and mouse, you need to have a USB KVM switch. Model GCS632U.

Thank you and good luck!

Keybrd quits working on laptop after ctl-alt_del to reach login

Repeating keys? This is a common problem for KVM switches if you go beyond the devices' capability. As you can see, GCS62 is a PS/2 KVM switch and it was designed to work only using a regular PS/2 keyboard.

This KVM switch does not support PS/2 to USB adapter. It might work but it's not guaranteed to work correctly. This does not work properly if you have a docking station for the laptop. It might work for couple of months then it would stop.

You smay isolate the problem by following the steps below:

1. Connect the keyboard directly to the computer to see if you will get the same problem.

2. Power cycle the KVM switch by disconnecting it from the computers and leave it unplugged for a minute or two.

3. Avoid using hybrid connection (PS/2 converted to USB) only for testing purposes.

4. If that work, then you know the answer is that this KVM only designed an work correctly with native PS/2 connection.

How do I hook up a Belkin 2-way Switch with Audio Support and Cabling?

kvm switches are easy, they just dont look it with the number of sockets.
hook up your keyboard monitor speaker mic mouse cables to the output sextion of the kvm just as if you were hooking them to a single pc.
hook the cables from the pc-s as if the kvm switch were the peripheral devices,
so that all the outputs from pc 'A' are connected to the relevant inputs on 'A' side of the kvm,
all the outputs from pc 'B' are connected to the relevant inputs on 'B' side of the kvm

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.

In AutoScan mode, the switch remains on one port for 10 seconds before switching to the next. This time interval cannot be changed. To exit autoscan mode press [Spacebar].

When in AutoScan mode, no mouse or keyboard controls. If the user moves the mouse or uses the keyboard while switching the connection between computer and the switch might be interrupted and cause erratic mouse movement and errant display when using the keyboard.

Maximum resolution supported is 2048 x 1536 @ 75Hz.

If mouse movement is erratic:
make sure you do not have more than one mosue driver installed. Make sure that the driver is either for a standar PS/2 mouse or a Microsoft compatible PS/2 mouse. Make sure you do not have any mouse drivers loaded in your CONFIG.SYS or AUTOEXEC.BAT files. Avoid moving the mouse or pressing the mouse button when switching ports on the switch. You can reset the mouse and resume porper mouse movement simply by unplugging the mouse from the switch and allowing 2-3 seconds before plugging it back in.

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.
