What are the keystrokes for a dell 582rr kvm?

Have you tried pressing Ctrl twice and then the port you want to control? I can't find the exact answer for you but here are few more;
1. Scroll lock twice and the port number you want to assign.
2. Numlock twice and the port number.
Same sequence as done with Ctrl key. (press Ctrl key twice and the desired port number).
Hope one of these will definitely work for you.
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I just purchased an iogear GCS1742 2 port kvm Switch. The keyboard is the only piece of hardware that will not work. I have two cpu systems and one monitor. The keyboard has a PS2 connector with a usb...


Due to the keyboard emulation that the GCS1742 uses it may not work with a PS/2 to USB adapter. If possible try using the KVM with a basic USB wired keyboard. This will tell you if the KVM is in working condition or if there is a problem with the actual KVM. If the KVM does not function correctly with a basic USB wired keyboard then I would think there is a problem with the KVM.

Hot Keys are either a single "Key" such as say the Ctrl button, or even a letter or number Key, on the keyboard or a group of "Keys" say Ctrl-Alt-Del, Shift- Alt-1, whatever. Usually the keys have a funtion assigned to them, and when the Keys is/are pressed on the keyboard, a certain action happens.. usually these are pre-programed OR user programed. Hope that helps.

All Keys do not work on keyboard with KVM switch

GCS632U is designed to work with standard USB keyboard an mouse only. You have to make sure that you are not using any type of adapter such as PS/2 to USB adapter. To further isolate the problem, please follow the steps below:

1. Connect the USB keybord directly to th computer to make sure that the keyboard is working properly.

2. Make sure that the keyboard is connected to the keyboard port on your KVM switch. You may take a look under neath this GCS632U (near the USB ports) and you will see an icon where to connect the keyboar and mouse.

3. If you're still gettings the same problem, Try power cycling this kvm switch by disconnecting if from the computers and disconnect also the keyboard and mouse from the KVM switch and leave them disconnected for a minute or two.

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

5. If same problem exist, try using different USB keyboard.

NOTE: This KVM swith does not work correctly with wireless, gaming and smart keyboards because it's designed to work with standrd USB keyboard only.

Iogear KVM Switch Not Working at All

jerk_shop is correct, the GCS632U does get the power it needs to function from the USB ports of the computers it is attached to. Make sure the USB portion of the KVM cable is plugged directly into a computer without the use of any USB to PS/2 adapters. You will also want to make sure that at least one computer is turned in order for this KVM to function.

Belkin (F1DK102P) 2-port KVM Switch freezes

We have the same model and the same problem. The scroll lock combo did not work for us. You need to press Ctrl, Ctrl then up or down arrow.

The manual was a load of old Tom *** as it did not mention this.

Starview Sv211k 2 port KVM

You have activated "sticky keys" functionality within Windows.
It is a feature designed for physically-challenged people,
who do not have the coordination to press multiple keys at the same time. So, for example, instead of holding CTRL-ALT-DELETE, the person can press CTRL, then press ALT, then press DELETE.

So, your "click" becomes a "SHIFT-click", thus highlighting everything between your previous click and your current click.

Restart each computer, and disable "sticky-keys" on each computer.
