New Computer Won't Switch Back

I have had a two PCs hooked up to this KVM switch one of the computers died so I bought a new one. Since I have hooked the new one into the switch I can switch from the existing computer to the new PC I installed, but the new PC doesn't switch back. My shortcut key is scroll lock twice then down arrow. It will only switch back using the shortcut when I shut the new PC down. Both are sharing a PS/2 Keyboard.

Re: New Computer Won't Switch Back

You should be able to press Scroll Lock twice and then the up arrow to go back. Have you tried that?

Here is a link to the original manual

I just buy a new computer and go to hook up my KVM switch that I was previously using and was working flawlessly. All cables are connected (KVM PS2) except the KVM video cable to computer # 2. So I'm...

I would look first at rep;lacing the cable itself, KVM's usually last a very long time. Cables can break down after awhile. The easiest way to check is to try the other cable on the new machine., or a pin could be bent on the cable.
I would look at those two things first before the KVM. IT is possible that the KVM may not support the new machine, depending on how old it is.

When a computer first boots up the video card send a request to the monitor to find on what resolutions the monitor supports. If the video does not get a response the card will default to very low resolutions. The only way to avoid this problem is to boot your computers one at time and keep the KVM on the computer until it fully boots to a desktop. This will allow the KVM to pass the monitor information to the computer.

GCS62 - both computers must be on for this thing to work?

It seems that you KVM switch is not working properly. computers connected to a KVM switch are not dependent to each other. you should be able to work on any of your computers while the others were turned off.

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.

Kvm switch won't stay on second computer, switches back

You might try disabling any power saving schemes in use on either computer. The KVM (I believe) gets its power through the ports and one computer may be shutting down power.
