If you are asking if their is a KVM switch which work off of the USB ports , then yes. Newegg.com had a least a dozen of them for sale.

Hello, i currently use a IBM desktop with IBM keyboard and mouse but i just bought a microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse which i just installed into my desktop using the installation CD. They are both...


Hi Tony,
It appears that you have an IBM desktop whose BIOS isn't capable of booting off of a USB keyboard and mouse device. Older computers used to require that a PS2 mouse and keyboard be attached before booting, to prevent you from booting a machine without any way of controlling it. You have 3 options:

1. leave the corded mouse and keyboard attached and never use them
2. update the BIOS for your desktop to the newest one in hopes that the updated BIOS will allow for USB mouse and keyboard operation
3. go to a computer store and get a PS2 to USB converter/adapter. They're small and relatively inexpensive. It plugs into the PS2 port, and makes your computer think that there's a PS2 device connected, when it's actually a USB device.

Tip

USB devices not recognised or not working properly?


Try these steps to reinitialize your usb ports on your pc

1. Unplug ALL USB devices connected to the computer. If you are using a USB mouse and keyboard, temporarily use the older type PS/2 devices if you have them, if you don't then just leave them connected.

2. Hold down the windows key and press r

3. Type devmgmt.msc into the run menu and press ok

4. Click on the + sign next to the Universal Serial Bus Controllers

5. You might need another mouse to do this if you have a usb mouse.. I recommend you get a ps2 connector mouse which goes into the green round connector in the back of your pc.

6. Right click and uninstall first the usb root hubs. all of them then uninstall the rest of the devices you see under Universal serial bus controllers

7. Ones you have uninstalled everything you should see the Universal serial bus controllers there at all.

8. Now go ahead and restart your pc.

9. Ones you have restarted the pc your usb ports will reinstall in a moment stand by while it installs all of them. If you get warning messages click ok or continue installation.

10. Now go ahead and plug the usb devices back in. Install software if required, all usb devices if not faulty or broken should work now. Also note the error code if you get one?

This solution doesn't fix all usb problems so if you have a yellow ! mark there and device status reports a error code. Then it might not be a problem with your usb ports.

Thank you for reading, do leave suggestions, comments, feedback below.

USB Keyboard and mouse wont work with PS2 KVM with adapter


Have you tried rebooting once it is connected? Not sure if it makes a difference, but I know you can not hook up PS2 peripherals without rebooting.

I have found that the Bluetooth adapter sometimes has trouble staying reliably connected through many types of desk material. Try getting a USB extension cable and relocating the bluetooth transciever closer to your keyboard/mouse work area.

2. Introduction
The Type 5C Keyboard to USB Adapter (P/N 5188) allows a USB compatible workstation to be connected to the
Server Control Switch (P/N 5185 or 5195). The adapter converts keyboard scan codes from the type 5C keyboard to
equivalent USB keyboard scan codes. The adapter also converts the mouse data to USB compatible mouse data.
The Type 5C Keyboard to USB Adapter can also be used in a standalone setup, where it is connected between a
Type 5C Keyboard/mouse and a USB based workstation.
3. Installation
3.1 Between Type 5C keyboard and workstation (standalone operation)
For all installations it is recommended that the equipment be powered off for system interconnection and/or changes
to a setup.
• Connect the port labeled To Type 5C Keyboard to either minidin8 connector on the Type 5C keyboard using a
straight through minidin8 cable (P/N 8002 or equivalent). If using a mouse, connect it to the other minidin8
connector on the keyboard.
• Connect the port labeled To Computer USB Port to any workstation USB port using a USB Type A to Type B
cable (P/N 4021 or equivalent). This type of cable is used for connecting a HUB or other device upstream to
another HUB or a host controller.
3.2 Between Server Control Switch and workstation (system operation)
For all installations it is recommended that the equipment be powered off for system interconnection and/or changes
to a setup.
• Connect the port labeled To Type 5C Keyboard to any Server Control switch CPU port using a straight through
minidin8 cable (P/N 8002 or equivalent).
• Connect the port labeled To Computer USB Port to any workstation USB port using a USB Type A to Type B
cable (P/N 4021 or equivalent). This type of cable is used for connecting a HUB or other device upstream to
another HUB or a host controller.
• Connect the video output of the workstation to the Server Control Switch video input connector using an
appropriate cable/converter for connector and sync conversion
• Connect and power on the rest of the Server Control Switch system per the appropriate installation instructions.
4. Technical notes
Keyboard
The Type 5C Keyboard to USB Adapter emulates a Sun Type 6 USB keyboard (P/N 3201273-01) and a Sun
Crossbow USB mouse (P/N 3703632-01). The Type 5C and Type 6 keyboards match in available keys, however
several keys are relocated on the Type 6 keyboard. The adapter appropriately maps the key codes generated to the
key legends on the keyboard (i.e. all keys work the way they are labeled).
TYPE 5C KEYBOARD TO USB ADAPTER Page 3

Ultra Spec Cables, Inc.
Important Note Regarding Standby Operation:
USB supports a SUSPEND/RESUME capability that has various and incompatible implementations across differing
hardware platforms. This can affect the operation of the adapter if the workstation supports a low power or standby
mode with an incompatible implementation. Low power or standby mode is normally activated through a menu
selection (using the mouse) or by pressing the POWER key on the keyboard (upper rightmost key on both the Type
5C and Type 6 USB keyboards). For this reason, the POWER key on the Type 5C keyboard IS DISABLED when
using the adapter. In addition, it is important not to activate low power or standby mode through other means.
WHEN IN LOW POWER OR STANDBY MODE THE SYSTEM MAY NOT WAKE UP THROUGH
KEYBOARD OR MOUSE ACTIVITY, REQUIRING A HARD POWER-DOWN TO RECOVER.
In addition, the POWER key on the Type 5C keyboard does not have the capability to power-on a system as it
would when connected to a Type 5C compatible workstation (nor does a Type 6 USB keyboard have this capability
when connected to a USB workstation).

Logitech MX3200 wireless keyboard and mouse


Hi...

You're probably going to need a Desktop USB Extension stand or cable if, I assume, you have your keyboard USB Receiver plugged into the back USB port of your desktop. These extension stands often come with your cordless devices (i.e., I got one with my Logitech cordless mouse... I don't need it for my laptop, but I do when using my desktop PC). You can make your own extension by purchasing a "Male-to-Female" USB extension cable, 3 to 6 ft in length (or longer if you need it). Plug the cable into your desktop, place the female end of the cable near where your keyboard is, and plug your keyboard USB receiver into the female USB socket of your extension cable.

Hope this helps!

KVM converter


Buy a usb hub and an usb extension, so that you can have 4 or 6 free usb at the front of your computer, and you can switch devices using usb rather then the mouse converter . Using the converter on mouse and keybord make easier for the plugs to slip out, and usb is better. Note some usb modem and some other device do not support usb hubs, you have to plug them straight into the free computer plug , if you have any.

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.

CS62U 2 Port USBKVM Switch not switching


Are you sure, the usb cable belonging to the keyboard is plugged in the appropriate slot?
I have a wireless keyboard/mouse, so I have only 1 usb cable going into the switch. The first time, is plugged it into the slot of the mouse, and the switch did not work, so I plugged the cable in the other slot, and now everything works properly.
