Question about KVM Switches
I had the desktop computer and laptop successfully working through a KVM switch, but when I changed the resolution on the monitor through the desktop computer, the monitor blanked out and gave me the message that "Input Signal Out of Range." I unplugged the monitor from the KVM switch and plugged it directly into the computer and it worked fine, so I tried to fix the resolution while it was directly plugged in, but now I get no signal from the desktop to the monitor. I tried to reset the monitor to factory settings from the menu of the monitor, but nothing happened. Under the information menu on the monitor it states that the current setting is 1152 x 864 and recommends 1680 x 1050 60hz. Any help anyone can provide would be great.

There is a natural order of things in pc's. It sounds to me like you may have an issue with the pc being just quicker than the lap top and it is loading in a hodge podge way.
I wish I could help you more but I would try going to a ps2 mouse and keyboard if you have the usb type and if not swap these two out as these must pass before the unit will even boot. Also - do you have a slave drive marked cable select? These things upset a delicate balance. I would also email the maker and see if they can help.
For a more definitive answer please send the make - model and operating systems on each pc - lap and desk - also have you done all your updates? Try updating the driver on the KVM website as well. These issues usually are a small matter to get lined out.
Let me know how it goes and send ur pc info

This almost sounds like the display setting on your laptop was changed to an external device. Most laptops are designed to be hooked up to an external display, such as a monitor or projector, specifically for presentations. You can alternate the display options in the following ways:
