    Maybe I wasn't specific enough about my problem.
    The switcher works normally when I am booted up into windows, the only time it fails is when I enter the BIOS and attempt to make changes. However I will double check the bios and make sure the PS2 keyboard is enabled. It must be though, because it works fine once I am in Windows.

    My original problem was with another KVM switch. When I bought this one pictured, no more problems. It does have heavy cables and the PS2 cables should be longer than the Video cables, but they are not.

Hello there:
first try this boot the computer and go to device manager uninstall the keyboard and than click on view and than click on scan for changes and see if the computer will recognize the keyboard and reinstall the driver for the device and if this doesn't work.. boot back into bios and check the settings for plug and play and make sure that this is enabled and if this is a usb type keyboard make sure that the usb setting is enabled than save and reboot you can also use computer #2 to check the settings against computer #1 to find out if you have any thing set differently ok?
please try these ideas and see if they work
best regards mike

When starting my computer I get a BSOD That Tells


The BSOD screen comes up mostly due to hardware problem. The BIOS of your system unable to initialise a hardware from a particular location.

You mentioned that after re-booting the system works fine with the keyboard. That shows that some hardware conflictions are there in your computer.

Do This:-

Make sure that the computer is connected only with the keyboard,mouse,monitor and the internet cable.

Now,

In the normal mode click on start-->run-->cmd
-->type chkdsk /r and now hit enter.

The black screen gives you a message saying
"
Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts. (Y/N)
"
In this case press Y and hit enter.

Now when you restarts the computer the check disc will start automatically and will take some time to scan your computer harddrive.

Now when the this process is over.
Insert the windows Operating system CD in the computer and then run a scan disc on the computer.
To run scan disc do this:-
Start-->run-->type here sfc /scannow and hit enter.

This will update your windows DLLcache dll files.

now restart the computer.

Now you can connect all your devices which we have dissconnected the first time and then restart the computer again.

The problem should be resolved.

If still you get the BSOD screen let me know if you have made any hardware changes recently..!

I cannot use my keyboard and mouse. Something is wrong with my devices


Make sure the keyboard is working in bios. When you boot the computer hit f2 or Del. key to make sure the keyboard is working. Also make a note that the keyboards light blink while turning on the pc.

If you are able to go to BIOS that means the keyboard is working fine.

Boot your computer in safe mode by tapping F8 key while the computer is booting. Select safe mode and check if the keyboard and mouse is working in safe mode.

If it is working in safe mode. Do a system restore to a date where everthing was working fine.

Please revert with the result of above .

Keyboard not working only during booting


If your keyboard is USB, switch to a standard PS/2 keyboard, and enable legacy support for USB in your bios.. This may help you, but your bios may not be able to use a USB keyboard during POST.

Keyboard not detected


There are some steps to figure out what is causing this.
If you have a desktop:
1. Replace with another keyboard that you know works.
If it boots, than it is the keyboard that was bad
2. If it doesn't - try getting into bios. There is a secion for
keyboard and make sure it is enabled.
3. If it is enabled, than it would be the port for the keyboard that
is the problem. You can take the computer apart an replace
it, or take it to someone who can fix.
If you have a laptop:
1. Add a keyboard to the computer.
2. If it boots, than it is the keyboard on the laptop. This could
mean it is not connected, you have the wrong drivers, or
try getting into BIOS like #2 above.
3. If the keyboard is enabled in the BIOS, reinstall drivers
first. If this doesn't work than there is something wrong with
keyboard (follow #3 above).
(BIOS - when computer boots up, look closely. There is a button you must press to get into setup mode (BIOS). I press F2 on my computer to enter BIOS. Some computers are different).
