Problems with 2 Port KVM Switch with Built-In KVM Cables

I just purchased this item and I have connected it to both CPU's which need to be functional for my daily use. My primary CPU is functional, however, when I try to toggle back and forth between the 2 CPU's, I receive a this pop-up on a black screen: "Message: No Signal". I have checked all the wires between the 2 CPU's and they all appear to be intact and correct. Both CPU's are receiving power. Help!

Re: Problems with 2 Port KVM Switch with Built-In KVM...

The monitor is not detecting the video signal from your computer. Assuming both of your computer video cards have been tested and really work I would try the following: Try switching the cable sets that connect the PCs to the switch. If the problem follows the cable set then it?s likely the cause. If not then try switching the cables that plug into the switch so that PC#1 is now connected to the port where PC#2 originally was and vice versa. Again if the problem stays at the same position then I would suspect a defective switchbox. If it doesn?t then you probably have an issue with one of your PCs video cards. I know this is two months late but perhaps but hope this helps you or someone else researching a similar problem.

Pretty straight forward. The cables that are attached to the KVM go to the 2 computers. The monitor, keyboard, and mouse cables connect to the KVM box.

If you have problems, let me know.

I just purchased an iogear GCS1742 2 port kvm Switch. The keyboard is the only piece of hardware that will not work. I have two cpu systems and one monitor. The keyboard has a PS2 connector with a usb...


Due to the keyboard emulation that the GCS1742 uses it may not work with a PS/2 to USB adapter. If possible try using the KVM with a basic USB wired keyboard. This will tell you if the KVM is in working condition or if there is a problem with the actual KVM. If the KVM does not function correctly with a basic USB wired keyboard then I would think there is a problem with the KVM.

Check that you are getting power to your StarView SV211K 2-port KVM switch. Try disconnecting the power, and then reconnect it, to "reset" the KVM. Check all the cables from port #1 on the KVM to computer #1. Check all the cables from port #2 on the KVM to computer #2.
Check all the cables from your Keyboard/Video/Mouse to the KVM.

If you still have a problem, disconnect everything from the KVM,
and connect the Keyboard/Video/Mouse directly to computer #1,
to ensure that it works *without* involving the KVM.

Laptop will not connect properly

If possible directly connect the KVM cables to the laptop computer. Try to avoid connecting the KVM cables to a docking station. Also if your KVM has manual port selection buttons on the front of the KVM try holding that button for about five seconds when switching ports.

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.

Try Scroll Lock + Scroll Lock. and if not kindly remove and once again attach the cables to the KVM Switch.

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: And, since this is a new product, you will also be entitled to free tech support from Belkin: 1-800-2BELKIN x2263
