Most KVM switches does not have a driver. Because these devices are simply Plug-n-Play and does not require any driver installation.

What you need to do is to check the system requirements for every KVM switches before purchasing it.

Here's the fact:
- PS/2 KVM switches are designed for PS/2 computers keyboard and mouse

- USB KVM switches are designed to work with USB. Meaning, if you're going to use an adapter (PS/2 to USB), there's a big chance that your KVM might not work correctly.

- Most KVM switches does not work properly with docking stations.

- KVM switches are tested to work with wired keyboards and mice.

- You have to make sure that everything is properly connected to the computers if you want your KVM switch function properly.

- Lastly, update the USB driver of your computers (XP and Vista).

- Most KVMs has a firmware upgrade that you may find in manufacturer's Web site.

COMPUTER KVM


the belkin needs a driver for win 7

My computers seem to have become somehow linked by the KVM switch


The GCS632U is just one KVM switch. But if you're going to check it out, it has actually two separate connections.

It will just switch once you toggle from one computer to another.

Try to power cycle the KVM switch.

1. Shut off both computers.
2. Disconnect the KVM switch from the computers. (make sure that not even a single cable is connected to the computer, even the audio).
3. Leave it disconnected for 10 minutes.
4. Reconnect the KVM and boot up the XP first.
5. Boot up the Vista, try to toggle from one computer to another.
6. LASTLY, shut off the Vista and see if same problem will occur.

If you get the same problem, then you need to contact IOGEAR and have them RMA the device. Because this is the first time that I heard of this problem.

Thank you and good luck!

I am using Vista and XP to run belkin peripheral switch for printing. The switch is not always seen by the OS. Is there a driver to fix?


ok- i use the same one, no driver needed- you hook it all up then boot the pc's and you hit the scroll lock key two times-then tap the up or down keys once. this will switch between the 2 pc's- this is a decent switch, and i really like it. good luck with it! if you need further assistance reply. but this is simple to make it work, so you should be ok. be well!

My machine is Acer Aspire M7711 preinstalled with Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium.CPU Q8300, Geforce GTX 130, 600GB Default RAID Mode, 4GB Memory. My problem is Vista Home Premium Installation...


Im assuming its a new machine and when you first booted Vista failed. When you boot up, press the F10 key. This will take you to a menu to start your Acer machine from the begining. It takes a while for the first complete boot. I hope this answers your question. If not, post back and we'll diagnose your problem again. Best of luck!

I have a kvm switch vista lap and xp desktop stopped working


I've gone through alot of KVM switches. Something in the electronics just gives up. If your keyboard and mouse are the pci type (round connector) then don't switch their locations while the computers are on. Windows won't see the change and you may damage the system. If thy're USB type then switching is OK.

Problem with KVM switch and Vista


Your problem has nothing to do with the Operating System (Vista), it has something to do with the brand of your computer. I have similar problem before, I have Vista (Dell), but the time I connected another Vista (Sony Vaio), everything worked correctly.

This is what you need to do:

1. You have to make sure that you are using a standard USB keyboard and mouse.

2. Connect first the keyboard and mouse directly to the Vista computer to see if the USB ports of your computer are working properly.

3. You may power cycle the KVM switch by disconnecting it from the computers (including the keyboard and mouse) and leave it disconnected for 2 minutes.

4. Reconnect everything after two minutes and then reboot the computers.

5. Try using different USB keyboard if problem exist after power cycling the KVM switch.

KVM Trendnet TK-207K switch


According to their website, the driver is Vista compatible.

When you attempt to switch PC's, do they both stop responding, or just one?
