Question about IOGear MiniView GCS62 2-port KVM Switch

1 Answer

Switch starts switching back and forth between computers itself

Any idea why, after working just fine for awhile, the GCS62 switch would start switching back and forth betweeen the computers all by itself? This is the 2nd IOGear GCS62 switch that has started behaving like this. I'm sure there must be a software upload, or something like that? Can anyone help? THANKS!

There are no firmware updates for the GCS62 also the KVM appears to not have a firmware upgrade port. If the KVM is auto-switching have you tried hitting the ESC key or Space Bar? That should stop the auto switching.

I just buy a new computer and go to hook up my KVM switch that I was previously using and was working flawlessly. All cables are connected (KVM PS2) except the KVM video cable to computer # 2. So I'm...


I would look first at rep;lacing the cable itself, KVM's usually last a very long time. Cables can break down after awhile. The easiest way to check is to try the other cable on the new machine., or a pin could be bent on the cable.
I would look at those two things first before the KVM. IT is possible that the KVM may not support the new machine, depending on how old it is.

On that model of KVM switch,making sure Both computers are on, you should only have to hit the "Scroll Lock" key twice, then hit the up arrow to switch between computers. like "tap-tap" on Scroll Lock key then "tap" on the up arrow key. 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!

GCS62 - both computers must be on for this thing to work?


It seems that you KVM switch is not working properly. computers connected to a KVM switch are not dependent to each other. you should be able to work on any of your computers while the others were turned off.

KVM Switch


The reason why this is happening is because the notebook keeps on loosing it's resolution and the GCS62 can't remember what's the resolution set to the notebook.

To resolve this problem, please follow the steps below:

1. Disconnect the tower from the GCS62 and leave the problem computer (notebook)still connected to the KVM switch.

2. Set your desired resolution (ex. 1280x768) to the notebook.

3. Restart the notebook while it's connected to the KVM switch.

4. The GCS62 will remember the resolution you set to the computer.

5. After rebooting the notebook, you may now reconnect the other computer and try to toggle to see if you will get the same problem.

But doing these steps should resolve the issue.

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.

Wobbly screen on mac laptop


are you using a Mac Mini-DVI to DVI adapter or any adapters? This is a VGA video output type of KVM switch so probably the problem is with the adapters involved to it.
