Question about Belkin F1DK102P 2-port KVM Switch

1 Answer

Switch stopped working

I have a 2 port Belkin switch and it was working fine. I uninstalled some software on one of the computers, rebooted it, and the switch would no longer 'see' that computer, except for about 2 seconds after pushing the switch on the kvm unit (video worked, mouse/keyboard worked for .5 seconds after the usual delay).It would then cycle back to the other computer without any problem. The software I uninstalled had nothing to do with mouse, keyboard, video (or so I thought). Any ideas?

I have a usb 2 port belkin switch to use one printer with 2 computers it was working fine now it switches over but it wount print from one of the computers. what could it be?


If available usb cables permit, hook up printer directly to the computer that does not print to check to see if software or connection is a problem rather than the belkin switch

Usage of KVM 2-Port USB between 'thin client' and 'Desktop' stopt


KVM are not the most reliable and will fail sometimes. The quickest way to get it back is to plug into a different USB port for the one that is active.

Belkin G+ Wireless USB Adapter


What OS (Operating System) are you using??
If it's Windows 2000, XP, Vista or 7, then they MUST have any USB device plugged into the SAME USB port, or it screws up the OS.
Try going to Control Panel (Classic View), then choose SYSTEM to get into Device Manager, go down to USB and see if ANY Belkin adapters are listed (assuming the USB adapter IS Plugged In) - if you see any listed, double-click the adapters and choose to uninstall then.
If that doesn't work, then reboot, pressing F8 repeatedly before the Windows "Splash Screen" shows up. After repeatedly pressing F8 on Boot Up, you should select SAFE MODE (just the choice that only says SAFE MODE). Once SAFE MODE comes up, open Device Manager the same way you did before, then go down again to USB and Delete ANY & ALL Belkin USB adapters listed.
Then reboot and see it it recognizes the Belkin USB adapter now and hopefully will let you setup it's Software.
If you like this, please RATE me .... Thanks

Can's switch without it switching back to first PC


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.

Belkin KVM 2 port switch


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.
