Belkin 2 port kvm switch problem

When I switch from one laptop to another, my newest Dell laptop has a problem with the video, I get the message 'no signal' and I can fix this by hitting the Fn and F8 keys at the same time but it is hard to do this because my docking station only allows my laptop to open a little bit. I want to be able to fix this problem with a setting or whatever I need to do so that I don't have to hit those keys to be able to use the moniror every time. Once I hit those 2 keys and change whatever that changes, it stays for the duration but when I power down and try it the next day, I have to go through this again each time I re-boot. Please help!

Probably u need to install docking software, so it knows that it will be an external video and not the laptop display default.
Check with dell support for that software

Where can I can the drivers for the Belkin 2 port KVM switch F1dk102u

The Belkin 2 port KVM switch doesn't need drivers to work, it is simply a plug and play switch. You plug your keyboard, mouse and monitor into the control box, and your computers into the ends, and off you go. You toggle between computers with the switch button, and if you turn off one of the computers, it automatically swiches to the other one.

I am unable to get my computers to recognize my mouse or key board? System is connected to two dell towers.

Do they work fine if you connect the keyboard and mouse directly? Does the video connection work correctly? Check that the appropriate ports are enabled in the BIOS (USB or PS/2).

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.

KVM switch mouse trouble

Does a mouse work if plugged directly into the laptop? Sometimes you have to change a laptop in the BIOS to allow a PS2 mouse in addition or instead of the touchpad. It may not be recognizing the KVM as a mouse. Try plugging the mouse right into the laptop and see if that works.

Problem with laptop connection

KVM's work best when you are using the same or similar type of hardware however there might be an issue with your video card interfacing with the KVM. I would switch the Video cables and see if the problem moved or disappeared. If the problem moves, then I would suspect the video card is the culprit. Since many problems can be traced to software compatibility issues, I would check to see if there is an updated driver for your video card and or your monitor first. If the problem disappears it could possible be a loose cable connection on the destop PC or the KVM itself. I would also try a different set of cables.
