Annoying chirps when switching back and forth

My KVM switch makes annoying chirps when I switch back and forth. (either using hot keys or the select button on the switch) This is the 2nd one that I have switched out that does that. The one I am replacing didn't chirp. I need to turn that off and can't find anything anywhere on it. Thanks in advance if you can help!!

    It is Belkin. You are correct not all chirp, my last one was just like this one and it did not chirp. I used it for a good year and a half with no problems. thanks!

    It says it is an OmniView E series, I went on their website to look for something but couldn't find anything. Is there somewhere else I should be looking for a possible upgrade? (thx)

First, not all KVMs 'chirp'.. We use mostly Belkin KVMs for our workstations and none of them 'chirp'.. Our server KVMs are very high-grade, and none of them 'chirp' either... lol, eh?

So, what brand are you using?

    What model are you using (Belkin)? There might be a firmware upgraden that will allow you to turn it off...

    We do not use the Series E, but I found the manual for it..

    I do not see any way to disable the beeps in this model, but I sent a support request to Belkin to see if any of their techs can give us some help with this.

On that model of KVM switch,making sure Both computers are on, you should only have to hit the "Scroll Lock" key twice, then hit the up arrow to switch between computers. like "tap-tap" on Scroll Lock key then "tap" on the up arrow key. See if that works.

Can't switch ports using PC keyboard

Make sure that your keyboard is connected to the keyboard port of the switch. The USB ports on the switch has pictures that indicates where the keyboard and mouse should be connected.

The hotkey combination is CTRL + ALT + SHIFT + Port no.(1,2,3 or 4) + ENTER

Note: "tap the keys one at a time and not at the same time"

Switch starts switching back and forth between computers itself

There are no firmware updates for the GCS62 also the KVM appears to not have a firmware upgrade port. If the KVM is auto-switching have you tried hitting the ESC key or Space Bar? That should stop the auto switching.
