In the link below, on page 9 of the PDF the maximum stated resolution of the KVM is Up to 1920x1440 @ 75Hz.

http://cache-www.belkin.com/support/dl/p75457_f1da116z_man.pdf

The monitor supports up to 1920x1200 @ 60Hz.

It sounds like there is an issue of synchronization between the monitor and KVM. This will force the monitor into a lower resolution to sync them. You may want to check with Belkin to see if there is a firmware update for the KVM. There may also be a driver issue with one(all) of the video cards on the system. I recommend updating the drivers on all affected machines with the monitor connected directly to the individual machines. Rather than using generic drivers, I would use the drivers downloaded from the manufacturer of video cards and from Viewsonic for the monitor.

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...


Bill,

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.

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!

USB mouse doesn't work.


Some USB devises are not compatible with USB hubs. They usually specify that they must be plugged into a main USB. This may be the case with your mice.

Belkin KVM STandard 9 pin mouse/keyboard to USB COnversion


You need to have the keyboard connecter (purple) connected to your computer in order for the KVM switch to recognize it. The computer is providing some power through the keyboard connector and this is what the KVM switch is feeding on.

If you have a USB keyboard, you may want to change your KVM for a USB compatible one. If you just want to use the KVM to switch your monitor, you may plug the keyboard (purple) connector of the KVM to your computer's keyboard PS/2 port and also connect you USB keyboard directly to your computer. It should work.

Problem with Belkin OmniView KVM F1DS102P


Is the LED for position 1 and 2 always on? If the switch doesn't detect power on the PS2 keyboard connector it won't let you switch to to that position. If you are using a USB mouse with an adaptor or a wireless mouse try a conventional PS2. I have a MS wireless mouse one of my switches does not like and have to resort to that sometimes. Another issue could be excessive cable length or PS2 extension cables. Let us know if you have any more questions on this topic and please don?t forget to rate the post.
