Question about Belkin F1DK102P 2-port KVM Switch
When booting up both an xp pc and a laptop, the display on the laptop sometimes appears to be upside down. Have to reboot laptop to rectify this but then the main monitor stays blank when we try to switch between the two. I have installed 10 switches and this is only happening on 2 pc's

Sounds like its not detecting video on the 2nd port. Have you tried switching the computer on port 1 to 2 yet? If the problem moves then I would suspect that computers video card or the cable that connects it to the KVM. Let us know what happens or if you need more assistance.

Sadly, it is probably the KVM as this particular model has a string of failures and is only rated 2 out of 5 stars on Amazon due to poor performance. :( http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-F1DK102U-2-Port-Switch-Cables/dp/B0001JXAQ6/ref=sr_1_1/105-6999807-3936431?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1187826004&sr=8-1 What I would do first is plug in Computer 2 directly to the monitor, keyboard and mouse with no KVM. If those work fine, it is probably not a computer issue; if you don't get video here, then it is a seperate issue with that PC. If Computer 2 is working, plug both computers into the KVM but switch the cables (plug Computer 1 into the KVM using Computer 2's cables). If Computer 2 shows up and can't switch to Computer 1, then it is the KVM messing up.

The switching software that you installed on your computer when you installed the KVM includes an optional setting called "scan" that can be set to automatically page between the two displays.
This is most often used when the device is used for network or server status monitoring. If you configured that to switch every one second I can see how that would be very annoying.
Check the configuration of the switching software to verify that the scan setting is turned off.

You should be able to press Scroll Lock twice and then the up arrow to go back. Have you tried that?
