Question about IOGear Computers & Internet
I believe that I'm having a problem with this particular KVM switch. Iinstalled it several days ago so I can use two desktop machines. Theswitch works fine, BUT for some reason, every few minutes, the video onthe monitor drops out for a few seconds. Usually, it comes right backup, but on a few occasions, I've had to hit the power button on themonitor to get the switch to respond.
Here are the details about the computers and peripherals:
Computer#1 - A homebuilt machine running Microsoft Windows XP ProfessionalVersion 2002 SP3, 2.2 GHz Intel Celeron with 2 GB RAM.
Computer #2 - An eMachines T6212 running Microsoft Windows XP Home Version 2002 SP2, 2.0 GHz AMD Athlon 64 3200+ with 2 GB RAM.
Monitor - Westinghouse 22'' widescreen monitor, LCM-22w3.
Mouse - Microsoft Comfort Optical Mouse 3000
Keyboard - Hewlett Packard RT2856TW, PS/2 Keyboard connected to the switch with a PS/2-to-USB adaptor
Theonly thing I can think of is that the PS/2-to-USB adaptor is causingthe problem. I have a USB keyboard that I have not tried with theswitch yet, but I'm hard-pressed to believe that a keyboard could causea video dropout. Then again, stranger things have happened.
I'velooked all over the Internet to see if anyone has had a similarproblem, but I haven't had any luck finding anything. I can say this,though--the Belkin KVM switch that I previously used with this verysame equipment did not give me this problem. But I had to replace itbecause of a different problem.
The GCS632U does not have any form of display emulation which may cause video problems if the boot up is not done right. What IOGear recommends is when booting up a computer the KVM should stay on that computer until it comes to a desktop. What this does is it allow the KVM to pass the EDID information from the monitor to computer and that should help.
