W7 using dongle ps2 to usb


If you are trying to convert your Logitech Trackman Marble FX from PS2 to USB so it will work with Windows 7, you can't just convert the port type - you have to get an "adapter" that converts the PS2 signal to a USB signal. See for ATen - UC 100KMA. WEB SIte:
http://www.aten.com/products/KVM/KVM-Modules-&-Accessories/PS2-to-USB-Adapter~UC100KMA.html#.U5sYrCi4NAE.

It allows you to convert a PS2 keyboard and PS2 mouse/trackball with the one device. It's what I use and it works just fine. The regular $2.00 port adapter was useless.

They are on EBAY sometimes for $20 or so. GOOD LUCK. :)

Hi, i have a Avocent SwitchView, Tried connecting to a user Monitor, KYB and Mouse then connected two monitor cables in A and B. Nothing seemd to be displayed. By the way i didn;t connect the power.


Hi Steven,

the power is or will be needed. Your unit is a single monitor... are you trying to make it a dual screen setup?

What is the target OS... ? How are you connecting *(USB or PS2) to the PC?

-If you use PS2 you might have to reboot your PC
Is the PC DVI or VGA?


I hope that helps getting you up and running

I connected the same keyboard/mouse/vga to the same avocent switch, sometime it works and sometimes it does not. Any ideas?


Turn off your IDLE settings and don't let the server go into IDLE.

Check that and see if that makes a difference.

What resolution are you using? And if you place the Avocent KVM cable to a different port, do you get a signal? If you use a Known good cable do you get a KVM session with good video?

Just bought a 4 port KVM and hooked it up and the USB mouse and keyboard arn't recognized by either of the two computers that were hooked up. The HOTKEYs are recognized by the KVM. The lights on keyboard...


is that a Mouse/keyboard combo ? If so, try with a standalone Mouse and a keyboard. If the Keyboard and Mouse need Special Drivers the solution might not work neither.

I hope that helped.

Brought a CS62US and Mircosoft KB with mouse. When USB combo plugged on the left USB, only KB is worked together with switching function. When USB combo plugged on the rigth USB, both KB & Mouse worked...


Unfortunately, this switch has a dedicated port for keyboard that listens for the keyboard keystroke. You MUST plug the keyboard into the dedicated keyboard port on the KVM switch for the hotkeys to work. I recommend putting the mouse that comes with your keyboard to the side, and using another mouse, plugged into the dedicated mouse USB port on the switch. Not the prettiest solution, but some of those mouse/keyboard combos have some funky hardware!

XP Display turns off after switching to Win 7


search for WIN 7 & KVM switch issues... you will find thousand of hits, because WIN 7 has one unique feature where it disables internal and external ports if these are not in use.

In a KVM solution setup this would mean, while you are connected everything is fine, now when you switch over to your (Lets say) WIN XP and work for 30 minutes on it... and then switch back, WIN 7 might have already scanned and seen that the USB port where the KVM cable comes in is IDLE... so it disconnected it... you cannot get it back until you reboot your WIN 7 system. Its not the KVM solution is one of those Microsoft wonder weapons that breaks what has worked for 20 years

USB mouse not recognized


I have similar problem. 2 inland KVM's (both have PS2 inputs, one has USB outputs) do not light or recognize my usb mouse with a PS2 adapter. They do recognize a PS2 ball mouse on the KVM's however. One of the computers (Sony vaio 1.5 GHz) does recognize a usb mouse with adapter on 2 other KVM's (Old Belkin and a Trendnet) (the second computer I have not tried in those configurations). Next I will try an optical mouse with a PS2 fitting. That did work with a fifth KVM at an auto business last week.
