I have detected the main causes of the mouse freezed on startup when switching between two computers. The problem isn't come from belkin 2 ports KVM switch itself. The problem is because I hook up 4 ports USB hubs to second PC. Remove the USB hubs will solve the problem. I have connected 2 PCs with one LCD monitor and now it works fine for me.

Make sure your keyboard and mouse are plugged into the correct usb slots on the switch. One is labled for keyboard, and the other for mouse. If you mix these up, those hotkeys will not work! :) Also, a much better hotkey for this switch is to tap scroll-lock twice. This automatically switches, so you don't have to hit multiple buttons.
OK well usually in the "Setup" you can "Assign" whatever keys you need, so can't you change the keys used to what you have? ALL Keyboards have scroll lock, it is probably just "Hidden" for instance I found one accessed via pressing a Blue Fn Key and then F12. Look carefully for "Other: small writing on keys.

If you mix these up, those hotkeys will not work! :) Also, try tapping scroll-lock twice to switch. It's much better than trying to use the num-lock + and - keys, since it's only a two-way KVM. Tapping Num-lock twice automaticallyswitches, so you don't have to hit multiple buttons.
Make sure your keyboard and mouse are plugged into the right USB ports on the switch. If you plug the keyboard into the mouse USB port the hotkeys will not work! The USB ports on the KVM switch are labeled under each port, with a mouse and keyboard icon respectively.From the Quick Start Guide/Manual:
The Numlock hotkeys are listed as:
[Num Lock]+[-] 
Switches to output 1
[Num Lock]+[-] 
Switches to output 2
Auto-scans and chooses which ever port is connected.
Alternatively: Tap [Scroll Lock] twice to automatically switch between ports.
Note: I've never been able to get the Numlock key combinations to work correctly. I always just use double-tap [Scroll Lock] trick to switch.
If you get stuck with your scroll-lock and Alpha lock lights flashing, just hit [Esc] to fix it.
(Scroll down to "Quick Start Guide" and choose CS62U out of the drop down).
Is this on a laptop or desktop PC? Does the Scroll Lock button not toggle the Scroll Lock LED? Make sure the keyboard is plugged in all the way, and is not plugged into the mouse port (if it's ps/2 and not usb)
This just worked for me. Using your PC keyboard, boot up to the PC first and then power up your mac. Hit the scroll lock twice and IMMEDIATELY hit enter. You have to go fast- click-click-click with no hesitation and it works great. I still can't toggle the hot keys to set up my mac keyboard, which I prefer using, but I'm assuming it takes the "right" timing on the keys. I'll keep trying.
