Question about IOGear GCS632U 2-port KVM Switch
I have ten 2-port kvms. After a week or two the keyboard stopped on one. Checked the connections, changed the keyboard and disconnected the kvm and started all over with no luck. After a few lucky kicks and punches it started working (not sure if it was the kick or punch). A week or so later........I have two more machines with the same issues. How would you approuch this problem.
I have had the same problem off and on since I bought my Iogear 2-port kvm switch over a year ago. I have a DYNEX wired, multimedia, usb keyboard and a Dynex wired usb mouse. The operating system on my desktop is Windows XP, SP3 and on my laptop it's Windows XP professional.
Yesterday, my keyboard "died" on me about 8 times and each time it requires unplugging the keyboard usb cable from the switch and my laptop, rebooting, then plugging the usbs back in. Really, really frustrating and annoying. I'm not a techno guru, but I got to thinking that maybe the keyboard driver might be the culprit. I decided to go to Control Panel, clicked on Keyboard, then Hardware/Properties/Driver/Update Driver. I clicked on "update driver" and let it find one automatically. It took what seemed like a long time for it to find the driver but it found one. The device name changed to KeyMaestro P2360, the driver updated, and I noticed 2 additional files were added to the System 32 directory.
It's only been a day but so far so good. My keyboard hasn't failed yet since the keyboard driver update. I don't know if this is the solution for you or not, but it seems to be the one for me. I'll know for sure if I can through a few days without it failing again.

Check the serial ports ???
What are you working on an old DEC mainframe ?

Check serial port connects, turn the screws in, check port board for cracks, if the cables are getting pulled or tugged, and have ya ever spill softdrinks/coffee on the switch?
